Press

“Burnt Sugar’s music is oceanic, and there’s been no sight of a shoreline since they set sail in 1999. Initial listening to Black Sex Y’all in its entirety may be exhausting – no smooth studio jam or cold conceptual experiment, the level of ambition and concomitant length (almost 140 minutes) raises the spectre of indulgence, but breadth and scope are central to the group’s endeavour.”
Colin Buttimer The BBC
