Sugar & Gold – Stay Soft

by MV

Sugar & Gold, as you may have twigged from the picture, have more than a little of the Scissor Sisters about them. We’re talking the same line in exuberant overstatement, a similar indebtedness to disco, and a fundamental love of all things pop.

It’s still early days (relatively speaking – they’ve been filling local venues for years now) for the San Francisco quintet, and they’re still a little too art-pop to be troubling the charts any time soon. But we all know how quickly that sort of thing can change – and ‘Stay Soft’ is a full-on pop assault that hints at their ultimate ambitions.
