Golden Apples, are sharing the quasi-title track “Sugarfire,” off their recently announced their new album Bananasugarfire, available October 27th via Lame-O Records (Slaughter Beach, Dog). “Sugarfire” follows lead single “Waiting For A Cloud, the track blends shoegaze, psych, and jangle pop.

Vocalist/guitarist Russell Edling discussed the new song, saying:

“”Sugarfire” describes the condition of becoming self-aware and self-reliant. In a culture where there is so much pressure to define and brand ourselves, it can be hard to remember the boundless complexities we can possess as people, and the extent to which we can completely transcend even our own expectations for who we are. It is also just a fun song, written in one sudden barrage of inspiration on Christmas Eve 2022. For the video, we paired up with Baltimore artist Jake Winstanley, who specializes in surreal psychedelic VHS video work. He filmed us in our practice space and created a wonderland of striations and starbursts.”

Led by Edling, Golden Apples have solidified into a full-band lineup made up of some of Philadelphia’s finest musicians. On Bananasugarfire, Edling is joined by drummer Melissa Brain (Marge, Goshupon, Amanda X, Cave People, Yankee Bluff), bassist Matthew Scheuermann (Lowercase Roses, Petal), and Mimi Gallagher (Eight, Nona, Year of Glad, Cave People).
