Kinky Love | Sugar

Chicago synth-pop trio Kinky Love debuted a pretty confection called “Sugar”. The single will surely bring you back, with its nostalgic 80s-styled keyboard and a laid back style that’s as relaxing as an island breeze. The promo copy I received mentions artists like Pet Shop Boys, or the soundtrack to a sequel to Michael Mann’s “Scarface”. There’s something to that. It’s the time-warp quality of the song that conjures up those comparisons. It’s glittery and hopeful, lead singer Xoe Wise’s vocals spill out like liquid sunlight, her pitch starting high, then middling, then ending where it began, giving the song a swaying feel. Follow the band at facebook and twitter. The band consists of lead singer Wise, keyboardist/programmer Dan Zima, keyboardist Alan Shinkunas, and Mike McCulloch on drums. — David D.
