[Indie Electronic] Bells Atlas – Sugar for the Queen

Sugar for the Queen

Bells Atlas have already established themselves as a local favorite in Oakland’s burgeoning music scene, and for good reason. The band’s brand of “kaleidosonic soul punch,” as they have so eloquently described it, masterfully mixes electronic and acoustic elements with soulful, avant-garde vocals for a hypnotizing sound. We had a chance to catch their performance at The New Parish a few weeks back and that style translates into an undeniably moving live experience.

Today, the talented four-piece released their latest EP, Hyperlust, a short-but-sweet collection of songs, many of which they’ve rolled out over the last few months. “Sugar for the Queen,” the second offering from the project, dropped yesterday and serves as a perfect introduction to their sound. It’s a dynamic and textured track that draws the listener in with duet vocals backed by unique guitar-plucking and scintillating percussion. The song steadily evolves into blissful psychedelia making for an enchanting, thought-provoking listen.
