“Sugarcoat” is a very catchy new track from Kid Bloom, a Los Angeles act. Buzzing guitars prove as melodic additions, though the key-laden melody and strong vocal hook is what tends to lead. The string-laden touch in the bridge is successfully interwoven, with the ensuing “something’s gotcha,” hook begging for replays.
Vocalist Lennon Kloser has this to say about the track: “‘Sugarcoat’ is very near and dear to my heart because it brings to attention the times I glaze over my problems with excuses. Its concept is melancholy, but you can’t help but feel happy when you hear it; like being at an aunt’s wedding on acid.”
“Sugarcoat” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2019’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Catchy Indie Pop.
