Sugar Ray is an American band formed in 1986 and gained fame in 1997 with their release of “Fly”.
The Southern California-based band's last album “MUSIC FOR COUGARS,” an exuberant reiteration of the band’s signature sound, with particular focus on song craft and sonic invention.
As ever, musical styles –from dancehall to disco, punk to pure pop – are mixed and matched, resulting in a celebratory, swaggering collection that is distinctively and delightfully Sugar Ray.
Songs like the buoyant first single, “Boardwalk,” or the Rivers Cuomo-penned “Love Is the Answer” are fit to burst with the wit and energy that once saw the band rule over the Top 10.
“MUSIC FOR COUGARS” sees this band of brothers operating at the very peak of its powers, with the skills, strengths, and smarts that only two decades together can provide.
