Album Review: Sugar Army - BEAST

"Their third record 'BEAST' indeed owns the meaty title."

More Sugar Army More Sugar Army

Geez it's good to hear the familiar rock swagger of Perth trio Sugar Army again after nearly four years between records.

Opening single Battles wails moodily from the get-go, settling into a slow groove around guitar tones of immeasurable fuzz. Moving into The Storm It Comes as frontman Pat McLaughlin's high harmony sits shiny and wonderfully at odds with fat bass undertones, their third record BEAST indeed owns the meaty title. Plenty of great moments follow (particularly McLaughlin's vocal vs the psych riff choruses of Gold Touch and Razor Heart), though as an album, well, whittled down it's a bloody cracking EP.
