After making a huge impact with their critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Drive-Through Chapel’ last October, fast-rising Swedish trio Spunsugar continue their rich and dreamy direction with their euphoric new EP ‘Things That I Confuse’.
Featuring the previously shared single ‘Rodan’, ‘Things That I Confuse’ marks a broad and eclectic moment within the band’s career. While still focusing heavily on their post-punk and dream-pop aesthetics, the group use this new collection as an opportunity to spread their creative wings, and deliver a broader and more diverse array of glittering delights.
Speaking about the new EP, the band said, "The songs on "Things That I Confuse" pretty much wrote themselves in a frenzy. Still, they sound more Spunsugar than ever. It's still as timeless and nostalgic as it is fresh. The four songs consist of two more poplike tracks and two that have kept the more noisy aggressive sound that has become a staple of the band. Now there's an added layer of an icy lo-fi feel. References to giallo films and Japanese movie monsters work to tell stories of close relationships, trauma and regret that keeps one up at night. Every second is thought through, there's no unnecessary fluff. Every note serves a purpose on this EP."

Spunsugar is an alternative rock band with shoegaze influencers based in Malmö, Sweden, with roots in the small town bible belt country side. The trio has different musical backgrounds which has led media to express praise for their elaboration and new take on the dark and pulsing nature of the post-punk sound and deliver it through a completely new and diverse contemporary lens, incorporating both goth and electronic elements.
After an EP and some introductory singles they 2020 released their thunderous and anthemic debut album ‘Drive-Through Chapel’. The album put them on the map as one of the most exciting bands coming out of the scene and Scandinavia with media support from Steve Lamacq at BBC 6Music, The Independent, The Line of Best Fit, Nothing but Hope and Passion and much more.

"If we were to list our favorite discoveries of the year, Sweden’s Spunsugar would likely be on it. The trio of Elin Ramstedt, Cordelia Moreau, and Felix Sjöström are a bridge to the past and the present. Their music is entrenched in the classic sounds of early ’90s shoegaze and layered with the harsh tones of contemporary post-punk.” - The Revue
"Spunsugar combines celestial shoegaze with a harrowing subject.” - The Line of Best Fit
“Spunsugar's dark, exciting and head on take on shoegaze, and comprise an overall strong debut which has broken new ground for the band's future.” - Destroy//Exist
