Sugar Rush: Sweesweesweets “Frill”

Nagoya trio Sweesweesweets follows a line of synth-loving electro-pop acts with a healthy use of vocal affects, now vanished — not just the wave of artists who emerged after Perfume blew up, but also smaller acts such as Root Thumm and Erectricmole. “Frill” is a swirl of twinkling synthesizer and electrified vocals, everything mixing together to create an enveloping, charged-up sound. And, like the best acts big or small in this world, the music itself captures raw emotion — here leaning towards longing — in all its shades. Listen above.
