SiDizen King + WES PERIOD – “Sugar Lemon Tree”


A shining new single from SiDizen King, featuring Wes Period, “Sugar Lemon Tree” touts a breezy and hooky charm throughout. The playful guitar licks, soulful vocal affections, and exuberant brass injections play with melodic engagement. Lyrically, muses about the metaphorical “sipping lemonade,” expresses the pursuits of “self-discovery and inner peace amid the polarization, fads and cacophonous sea of opinions that typify the world today.”

“Sugar Lemon Tree” optimistically delivers a perspective of “navigating the lows back to higher ground,” touting a more hip-hop pace as the two-minute mark approaches; the guitar pulses and playful vocal remind fondly of Outkast here. Touting beautiful production and hooky sing-along chorus, “Sugar Lemon Tree” is a thorough success from SiDizen King and WES PERIOD.

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2022’ Spotify playlist.
