Forming out of the ashes of Making Monsters, Derry/Belfast-based four-piece Sugarwolf continue to establish themselves as one of Ireland's most thrilling rock outfits with their new single 'Changes'.
The visuals are directed and edited by Sean Mullan, and feature an array of characters and costumes in a speed dating session in Dublin's Laughter Lounge. The band perform in front of the audience, with events becoming steadily stranger as the night goes on.
"Love and loss, a topic that will forever be present in a musician or writer’s influence and unfortunately something that most of us will experience - 'Changes' explores the stages of loneliness, acceptance and empowerment," Sugarwolf said of the track.
"We wanted this to be an uplifting and high energy song but also keep the raw emotion in a story that is filled with heartache and new beginnings."
Led by frontwoman Emma Gallagher, the band have shared stages with the likes of Fightstar, Black Peaks, Queen Zee, Employed To Serve and Skindred – helping them to build up a reputation as one of the finest live acts in the country.
In late 2019 and early 2020 the band released their singles ‘Scared Of The Dark’ and ‘Changes’ to a multitude of press reactions and radio slot support. After all touring plans had been halted by a global pandemic, Sugarwolf spent the remainder of last year writing and further developing their sound and have now started the new year off with a bang by being hotly tipped as one of BBC Radio 1’s Gemma Bradleys 'Ones to Watch' in 2021.
Sugarwolf enjoyed a busy first year as a band, with several tours across the UK and Ireland, including festival appearances at Camden Rocks and headlining a stage at Stendhal Festival – securing them as one of the BBC’s ‘Future Headliners’.
Drawing influence from the likes of Bring Me The Horizon, Wolf Alice and Lady Gaga, their unique approach to rock marks them as one of the most compelling rising acts of 2020.
