PREMIERE – LISTEN TO CALVIN LOVE’S NEW TRACK SUGAR HIVES AT THE FADER
"Sugar Hives" by Calvin Love is a tender and multifaceted folk-pop song about addiction — the track draws a unique narrative in telling its story as an ongoing struggle instead of an event in the past. The Edmonton singer/songwriter is blunt in his lyrical description, with the lines "Tastes so sweet/ Can't say no/ Why have one when you know you can have it all?" running throughout. The song's indulgence doesn't lead to anything but loneliness and confusion, but a personal connection helps lead Love to a promise of a better day, and the song into propulsive, saxophone-backed rock.
