Slow Sugar’s Dreamy “Hypnotic Love”: Premiere
If “Hypnotic Love” is your introduction to indie-pop duo Slow Sugar, then you couldn’t ask for a more glorious soundscape from them to jump into. The pair is made up of New York City residents and former University Of Pennsylvania jazz combo performers Danielle Harris, who serves as vocalist, and instrumentalist and producer Alex Utay.
Like the temperature during August, “Hypnotic Love” smolders with intensity. Idolator is premiering the moody, synth-filled track today, and as Danielle explains to us, its origins lie in an intimate personal experience.
“‘Hypnotic Love’ came from spending 48 hours straight in my now-ex-boyfriend’s bedroom when we had just started dating,” Harris tells Idolator. “The song captures the experience of intense infatuation with another person, where being around them alters your state of consciousness.”
Slow Sugar’s debut EP is due out later this summer. Fall under the spell of their single “Hypnotic Love” above.
