NEW MUSIC: HBBRD – SUGARCOAT

London-based Indie Rock sensation HBBRD releases new single “Sugarcoat”.



Charles Hibberd – the polymath behind HBBRD – is wise beyond his years. It might be this insight into his experiences from days gone by that makes this songwriter’s output so addictive. With each release, HBBRD explores another area of his existence, details another train of deep thought or deconstructs another preconception of the world he sees.

“It’s about sometimes needing to ask for help, and battling with your own brain to try and steer yourself in the right direction.”

It’s no surprise, then, that “Sugarcoat” sees his artistry reach new heights. There’s a sense of optimism behind the fuzzy guitars and thrashing drums, despite lyrics (that I have just tilted my head 90 degrees to read off the artwork – very cool little easter egg!) that divulge the darker times in this songwriter’s life.


HBBRD explains that “Sugarcoat” is about running away from your problems with little thought as to where you might end up. “It’s about sometimes needing to ask for help, and battling with your own brain to try and steer yourself in the right direction.”
