Sugardrive shaped in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1993, and became among that country’s popular pop functions of the past due 1990s. Made up of Paul Flynn (vocals and acoustic guitar), Michael Westwood (acoustic guitar), Gavin Wienand (bass) and Garth McLeod (drums), Sugardrive started their living playing riff-heavy alternate rock, but later on their sound shifted even more towards pop, incoporating components of dance music and jazz. Their debut recording, Belly Total Under premiered in 1993, and noticed the music group gain some interest in South Africa. The discharge in 1995 from the follow-up, Hey God, It’s Me helped to create on their status. In 1996, the Snapshots EP premiered, heralding a big change in path for the music group. The EP noticed Sugardrive move even more in to the trance-pop territory pioneered by Portishead, as well as the recording third , – sand.guy.sky – extended upon this new direction. In 1999, Sugardrive came back with ONCE I Died I HAD BEEN Elvis, their most well-known recording to date.
