“First You Get The Sugar is a local favourite combining melodic vocals and instrumentation to take you on a trip from here and back.” -Montreal Music Scene

“Danceable, giddiliy hooky…they’re going places.” -Mark Lepage, Montreal Gazette 

“Offering those key elements we all look for… excitement, hooks, and maybe a touch of danger.” -James Beaudreau, Masterdisk Record Montreal-based First You Get The Sugar is gearing up to release its third effort, a brand new EP called “Foreign Lands”. A fitting title for a record that seeks to emphasize the newness of the band’s musical direction, and how far they have traveled from the sounds of their earlier work. Since releasing their self-titled debut in 2011, and the songs they recorded at Converse’s Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn in 2012, they have been seasoning themselves on the road and in the studio.

A prominent thematic thread can be found in the way the five tracks unfold on the new record: alienation, confusion, and a struggle with the dark unknown. However, it’s not all doom and gloom here. The ecstasy of making it through the darkness and returning to balance is reflected by the time the record clocks out, leaving the listener surprised that they’ve travelled such a complete journey in such a short time.

With the production of their music now fully in their own hands, ***FOREIGN LANDS*** is a deep reflection of the band’s sonic will. You might notice that the production is credited (aside from mastering) entirely to members of the band. It took years to develop the necessary skills to be ready for the challenge of making this new record on their own. The risk paid of, and it turned out to be a beautiful, collaborative and gratifying artistic experience. Tracking came together in makeshift, sometimes dangerous pop-up studio spaces, with a very limited amount of gear, and on a shoestring budget that defies convention. Mixing took place in the cozy confines of Daniel’s spare bedroom, and the results are before you today.

“Foreign Lands” will be released in full on October 28, 2014. The release is fully independent and will be available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon, most other online stores, and major streaming sites (Spotify, etc..). It will also be available for purchase on the band’s Bandcamp page http://www.firstyougetthesugar.bandcamp.com
