San Diego Dream Pop Duo SUGAR WORLD Covers CHROMATICS’ Pearl ‘KILL FOR LOVE’ Gracioulsy

18 August 2020

SUGAR WORLD is a fresh San Diego collaboration with two members
of daydreamers band Naps. Last year they premiered two twinkling
guitar-driven pop songs. Sad In Heaven and We Fell In Love.

Earlier this year they shared their take on Yo La Tengo’s meditative beauty Shadows
and they follow it up now with another cover. This time it’s a winsome interpretation
of Chromatics’ starry-eyed pearl Kill For Love. And Sugar World truly shines with a dove-like version. Less orchestrated than the original, giving the song a more direct and more personal touch, the isolation effect we heard before from several other artists making music in quarantine.
