I Lied is the latest release by French indie rock band Sugar Wizard. Oozing with cool energy, that highly sought-after cool French rock vibe shines in this energetic track. With dark, twangy guitar notes and a steady rock beat, the track lures the listener in with a dark, seductive aura.
The band is made up of four guys who call each other ‘soul brothers’ – Victorien (bass/vocals), Philippe (guitar), Aymeric (drums) and Kévin (guitar). The quartet formed in 2019 after they all met in Lyon, and decided to come together to deal with their combined ‘musical and emotional baggage’ through the cathartic release that comes from making music.
Sugar Wizard describe their sound as ‘melancholic, catchy and mysterious rock’. Each member of the group brings to the table their own unique perspective. Although sometimes their differing ideas and opinions can clash, they work together so well as a group to bring out the best in each other creatively, and when it works, it really works – this latest track is a perfect example of their cohesion as a band.
I Lied is an energetic rock song shrouded in an enigmatic allure. With cryptic lyrics that possess a unique sensuality alongside a thrilling rock beat, the track sums up the grungy mystical vibe of Sugar Wizard to a tee. Bass player and lead vocalist Victorien’s deep, gravelly vocals are laid over the hypnotic twanging guitar and thrash of drums to create a song with a spellbinding quality.
The band have a load of bangers ready to launch in this new year of 2024, and their major goal of the year is to get out there and meet their fans. There’s no doubt that their thrilling indie rock sound would make for some incredible live performances, so keep an eye out for any of their future shows they may have and stay connected to Sugar Wizard through their socials for any future releases.
