I realize that I have totally been neglecting my blog the last few weeks. Life has just been crazy, which makes me so sorry for taking so long to share this track from an artist named Sugardrum.
Sugardrum is multi-instrument virtuoso Nigel Bunner of England, and he describes his music on his website as “acoustic storytelling songs.” Bunner really does focus in on the lost art of music as story telling. As so many artists are focused on the bigger pictures and making sure all the notes are in the right place, Sugardrum is more about entertaining his listeners with what he has to say,and the beautiful music he builds around it.
The track “Bubble Clouds,” appears on his newest EP Where Once Were Roads which has just been re-released. Filled with gently strummed acoustic guitar and soft harmonies, Sugardrum reminds of some other high quality folk acts like Badly Drawn Boy and Sufjan Stevens. One of the best parts of the song though have to be the music video, featuring a “home-made” video game that goes perfectly with the song. Make sure to watch it below.
