Breaking hearts and starting dance-floor fires since 2013, Sugar Fed Leopards (SFL) play sweet original music that emanates from somewhere in the sequinned space between disco, soul, doo-wop and rock n roll.
Described as “…Kath and Kim on acid”, this blazing septet sizzles on stage with smoking hot costumes, tight dance moves and sweet harmonies, backed by a cranking rhythm section and soaring saxophone.
SFL launched their debut album ‘Sweet Spots’ in 2015. Riding high, the band packed a suitcase full of sequins and toured Europe making new friends and fans in Italy, Germany, France and Belgium.
SFL hit the studio in 2017 to produce second LP, 'Take You Out Tonight'. Following a sold out launch, the album was nominated 'album of the week' on both PBS FM and 3RRR FMs.
“One of the things I love about Sugar Fed Leopards is that though they're ostensibly a disco group, the minimal drums, bass, guitar, three voices and saxophone lineup, and the way they use it, makes them feel more like an early sixties rock'n'roll vocal group who stumbled upon the disco rhythm a decade and a half early." - Richie1250, Stone Love PBS FM.
In February 2018, SFL released double A-side digital single, ‘Rose’ and ‘Sugar in Her Pocket’. During the pandemic, the band were busy diligently secreting strings of musical pearls while baking bread and making babies. This time resulted in a song and film clip ode to spring, 'Flowers in the Falling Rain' (2021) and soul banger, ‘Introducing…’ released in 2022.
2023 has seen SFL back in the studio recording their third album; a celebration of 10 years of sweet music making, set for release in early 2024.
Getting undeniably hotter over time with fresh tunes and new moves, SFL are standing by and ready to whip up an ecstatic meringue on the dance floor of your dreams.
