Ever since Sucré announced that the vinyls of their debut album were finally pressed, I’ve been anxiously awaiting my Red Velvet bundle (vinyl! Danny Roberts print! Tote bag!) and, of course, spinning A Minor Bird non-stop.
From start to finish, A Minor Bird is a cohesively ethereal work of art. Stacy Dupree-King’s vocals surpass any expectations or predictions that could have been gleaned from her work in Eisley (which makes me even more excited for the next Eisley LP!). Along with Darren King’s infectious beats and Jeremy Larson’s enchanting string arrangements and production, Sucré have crafted a stunning debut album.
“Light Up,” the fourth song off of the album, is a relatively minimalistic track, but one that highlights Dupree-King’s vocals, as well as the beauty in simplicity. This bare bones video for the song is mesmerizing and showcases the artistry and professionalism of the trio.
Tomorrow the first single from Sucré, “When We Were Young”, will be released and if this clip says anything, it’s going to be phenomenal. Sucré is essentially Stacy King of Eisley, along with her husband Darren King of Mute Math and Jeremy Larson. I cannot wait to hear more!
