Introduce yourselves…
We’re Sugarthief. We’re really bad at getting to places on time but we’re pretty good at staying in time.

Describe your sound in five words…

A lot of wobbly shit.

Influences...

Our influences change all the time, at the moment we listen to loads of Conan Mockasin, Babe Rainbow and of course the OGs The Doors, Beatles, Pink Floyd.. quite a bit of Kendrick Lamar, Tyler the Creator and A LOT of jazz. Basically a bunch of stuff.

Highlight of your career so far...

We did a headline show at the institute in Brum for our EP release in March. It sold out and it just went a bit mental, we were all pretty waved and the whole day just went perfectly, which is rare for a gig.

Best three new bands / tunes...

The Lizards - Astro Boy

The Cosmics - No Descent

Sam Hollis - Miranda

Dream zone...

A jam with Zappa would be pretty amazing, maybe badbadnotgood as the backing band.

Best band ever seen...

Whitney in Birmingham. Perfect sunny day, a brass section, beautiful songs, had a great chat with them after too.

Who are your Heroes and villains...
Neil Young and Neil Young when he didn’t play On The Beach in London.

Karaoke song...
Dancing in the Moonlight.

Plans for 2019...

Lots of jams, turn them into songs, release them at some point. Also a bunch of shows, we’re playing a good proportion of the UK in October on the This Feeling Alive Tour with a load of great bands, grab a ticket if ya fancy it, or don’t.
