Teesside alt-indie outfit Sugar Roulette are set to drop their latest single DEJA FOOL and we’re delighted to be given an exclusive listen ahead of its release on Friday 21st April.

The song opens up with a lurking War Of The Worlds style bass and kicks in with relentless drums and swagger-filled, Arctic Monkeys-esque guitar. The vocals are potent and punchy, the solos are satisfying and the drop-down then ‘give it rock all’ finale brings a bit of variety and plenty of excitement to proceedings. All in all, this is a solid rock track, filled with as much pep as you can manage in just under four minutes.

Here, the band (who play Independent, Sunderland on Saturday 22nd April and Munro Festival, Stockton on Saturday 1st July), tell us a little more about the track…

“DEJA FOOL is a song about the frustration of someone continuously repeating the same mistakes over and over again and never breaking the cycle that they’re in. The song was created by the bassist Nathan and guitarist Will switching instruments at a rehearsal and us jamming a bass line that Will created in the moment. The recording also features Nathan on the guitar including the solo and has us switching the instruments in a live setting.
We like to think of DEJA FOOL as the evil brother to Tranquility Lane which was our first single, which was much more of an indie pop song. Influences for the song definitely come from the more aggressive portion of our interests such as bands like Turnstile, IDLES and Shame.”
