Toronto Music Scene September 28, 2012
Montreal’s First You Get The Sugar has spent 2012 making the festival circuit supporting the release of three new songs recorded at Rubber Tracks in Brooklyn, NY. Late last year, the band won the opportunity to record tracks with Grammy-winning producer/engineer Geoff Sanoff (Green Day, Beirut, The Sheepdogs), which they then had mastered by Andy VanDette (Rush, David Bowie). The dancey, feel-good tunes posses indie swagger that channels the likes of Tokyo Police Club and Franz Ferdinand. Polished, poppy beats that sound slick and ready for a remix. Fresh off their Pop Montreal performance, this is a band that will be fun to watch and will likely make it decently far in the judging portion of the festival.
