It’s no secret that, generally speaking, my favorite artists tend not to be American. Maybe it’s because I’m half English or maybe it’s because I grew up listening to a steady diet of Beatles-esque British Invasion type music (courtesy of my wonderful mother). But the bottom line is that my favorite bands and artists of all-time just aren’t American; which is why I’m pretty excited to be discovering new artists, such as Sucré, of late.
Sucré’s sound is extremely romantic and brings out the daydreamer in me big time. Stacy’s vocals remind me at times of everyone from Emiliana Torrini to Nina Persson (The Cardigans) and someone else that I totally can’t think of right now. Fuck. Who is it? Maybe a not-annoying version of Leigh Nash (Sixpence None The Richer)? Anyway, the point is she’s got a sweet girlish voice which perfectly fits the beautiful orchestral production throughout Sucre’s debut album, A Minor Bird.
The album clocks in at just under 40 minutes; therefore you have no excuse not to give it a chance and listen to the whole thing. It’s really good. My favorite track is either Chemical Reaction or the romantic lead single, When We Were Young; which you can watch the video to below.
Side note: To the writer at Variety who compared their music to Leona Lewis…..are you fucking high or just not listening?
*Sucré’s debut album, A Minor Bird, is out now via Red Velvet.
