New York’s Hudson Valley pop-rockers Sugar Fight are gearing up for the release of their brand-new single, “Snowglobe,” to be released as a three-track single on May 7 through Dromedary Records.
New Noise are proud to premiere the video for “Snowglobe” below:
One odd bonus about the pandemic is that amazing musicians have been pretty free to do stuff, even if much of it has to be done remotely. So, this past winter found bassist Mark Lerner assembling a bit of a power-pop supergroup of talent from among his friends and neighbors in New York’s Hudson Valley.
Lerner has played bass in the chameleonic New York City outfit Life in a Blender, John Linnell (TMBG)’s backing band The Statesmen, and folk-punkers Flat Old World, in addition to his long-running eclectic combo Rosine. Guitarist and studio wizard Chris Maxwell (Skeleton Key, Gunbunnies, and his own solo career, as well as composer for Bob’s Burgers) signed on for guitar and production. Lukas Lerner (Brass Orchid) played drums. And, for this single, lead vocals were split between Frank McGinnis (Frankie and His Fingers) and Peter Naddeo (Archipelago).
“Snowglobe,” the single’s A-side: a wistful meditation on leaving the city, with melancholy that is belied by a joyful pop-punk melody and walls of guitar.
On the track’s release, bassist and songwriter Mark Lerner states:
“I have been concentrating for years on near-classical chamber folky stuff and not really writing songs, but sometime around December 2020, pop songs just started coming out of me. I remembered how fun it is to flex those particular muscles and indulge guilt-free in catchy writing and production. I now have a decent pile of these things.
Luckily, Dromedary Records has seen fit to release these first two sings as a lathe-cut, seven-inch single.”
