“Sugar” grabs your attention quickly with a blues injected rock melody that is fueled with enough raw emotion and energy to light up the midnight sky .

primary singer and songwriter, and co-guitarist Stel Furet’s vocals are “Rock and Roll”perfect and have you hanging on every single well crafted word .

Sugar, teeters on the line between bluesy bluster and 1990s slacker-rock, but it also manages to sneak in some tricky-timed riffage without coming off overly technical. The lyrics on the track are cynical, sinister, and swaggering. Here, Stel sings: I’d do anything just to know you/Even kill just to get your love/I’d do anything just to show you/Just how bad I need your love/And you know I’ll sin to fit in/‘Cause you’re my sugar pimp. When pressed about the song, Stel coyly says: “I like going fast. Cars, bikes, skis, whatever. I wanted to write a revved-up driving song. So, I was in northern Wisconsin last year, and I got on the highway. I did about 120 on some really well paved and, seemingly, endless highways they have up there, I heard the riff in my head, and the song came to be.

Songs like “Sugar” are exactly what Rock and Roll is all about , Fast,Loud,Unapologetic and Fun as Hell. We can’t wait until Crash Monkeys release their debut EP “Love &Kicks” comes out on November 18th . Until then … pour yourself an extra large cup of coffee and crank “Sugar” to 11.
