Interview with Kat of Sugar Bomb!

With an electric single, “Kiss Me” recently released, Brooklyn based band, Sugar Bomb! wants the world to know who they are. I interviewed lead singer Kat Hamilton and asked her about the band, their upcoming album, and future touring plans.

Can you introduce yourself with your name, your role in the band, and your favorite pizza toppings?
My name is Kat Hamilton and I am the lead singer and songwriter for Sugar Bomb! I really like pepperoni and olives on my pizza, sometimes caramelized onions if you got em.

How long has Sugar Bomb been a band?
Sugar Bomb! has been a band for about two years although it started as a floundering solo project/sort-of band type thing. We recorded our first Sugar Bomb! “E.P” spring 2012, but the sound has changed a lot since that project. Continue reading Interview with Kat of Sugar Bomb!

Concert Review: The Summer Set – Legendary Unplugged

The-Summer-Set-LegendaryThe Summer Set decided to start off their 2014 by going on an up-close-and-personal acoustic tour on select dates across the US, playing venues that hold a max of 400 people. I was fortunate enough to go to the San Francisco date of Legendary Unplugged on February 22, 2014. Bottom of the Hill, a 350 capacity venue, was the first venue The Summer Set headlined back in 2010, and now they were back again. I did not know what to expect from this night, other than the fact I knew it was going to be Legen-wait for it-dary. Continue reading Concert Review: The Summer Set – Legendary Unplugged

Album Review: You Me At Six – Cavalier Youth

ymas_cavalieryouthLike many of the eager You Me At Six fans across the globe, I had been waiting for their new album to be released for so long. But fellow fans, the wait is over! You Me at Six finally released their fourth album Cavalier Youth this week. Before the album was even released, we got a teaser with two singles, “Lived a Lie” and “Fresh Start Fever,” and a music video to go with the former. With these releases, anticipation built for this album, and after hearing it in full,  it was what I expected from the rock group across the pond.

Each song off of Cavalier Youth is strong and powerful. The first track, “Too Young to Feel This Old,” starts the album off strong. It’s your typical love song, but with a twist. Besides the catchy repetition of, “I’m just a boy, he said./ I’m just a girl, she said./ We’re in love, they said./What happens next, who cares?” the song is upbeat and relatable. Lead singer Josh Franceschi sings with so much power and emotion that you can feel the passion in your bones. Continue reading Album Review: You Me At Six – Cavalier Youth
