Eat Sugar

Who? Eat Sugar sprung from the Midwestern womb ofCincinnati at the end of 2006 and has since taken the scene by stormwith their spastic brand of electro-charged dance pop. Aidan Bogosian(vocals), Jim Reynolds (bass/synth), Greg Poneris (drums), and ErinProctor (synth) have shared stages with the likes of Voxtrot, VHS orBeta, Calla, and Enon, and the band’s self-released eponymous EP isavailable now.

What’s the Deal? Eat Sugar’shot-blooded, punk-laced hooks are well-suited for fans of Shitdisco,LCD Soundsystem, and fellow Dayton, Ohio alt-rockers Brainiac.Bogosian’s nervy yapping brings a quirky vibe to their mini debut whilethe rest of his bandmates keep up with an unshakable, raw power. Fromthe angsty bass lines of “I’m a Carrier” and the post-punk punch of”Brown Boots” to the propulsive sass of “Sixteen,” Eat Sugar combinesbold, vigorous lyrics and upbeat electro-pop melodies. “That chick’s onfire,” Bogosian quips over razor-sharp synth beats. Well, the samething can be said for Eat Sugar.

Fun Fact: EatSugar took their name from an art exhibition titled “Eat Sugar SpendMoney,” which was on display at Cincinnati’s Contemporary Arts Centerin the early ’90s.
