Sug Daniels Shares Playful New Single “When I’m Gone”
Philly-based singer-songwriter Sug Daniels’ new single “When I’m Gone” (out today on Don Giovanni Records) highlights what fans of Sug already love about her music. It’s a sparkling track with bright and breezy keys and strings, carried along by some well-placed percussion (the hand claps are particularly apt on a flirty little song about connecting with another person). Sug’s honey-drenched vocals dip low, resonant one moment, floating light as air the next.
“When I’m Gone” is playful, teasing. “I wanna know what you’re into because I want to do you right. But first I gotta know, baby, don’t you wanna touch my body? Don’t you wanna drive me crazy?” It’s a charming song that revels in the sparking potential of what could happen. It’s someone with their foot resting lightly on the gas pedal. Ready to take off should the opportunity arise but happy to coast in the meantime.
Catch Sug Daniels live. She’s got a handful of shows this month, including one with Paisley Fields and Sean Barna at Ortlieb’s in Philly this Sunday. Sug will also be part of the Don Giovanni Showcase at SXSW. You can contribute to her GoFundMe to help her get there.
