SHORT BIO

A soul-shaking, infinitely charming band from the far north.

Powerful, funky and alt-folky, the Super Saturated Sugar Strings have a very nostalgic, yet contemporary sound; rich with vocal harmonies, string melodies, and an element of carnival sideshow. Their gypsy-country vibe has won the group high honors and has stirred a fervent congregation of dedicated fans.  

Based in Anchorage, Alaska, the group formed in 2011 and includes Kat Moore on vocals, piano, keyboard, and percussion; Carlyle Watt on vocals, guitar, and percussion; Theresa Watt on cello; Miriah Phelps on violin; Logan Bean on trumpet; Kevin Worrell on bass.

NOTABLE QUOTES

"As healthy injections of '20s ragtime jazz mingled with the kind of gothic folk...the crowd, summarily, lost their shit. The SSSS's two albums saddle tight vocal harmonies on a shape-shifting catalog of songs that'll be stuck in your head..." 

- Portland Mercury

"If they must be categorized, let them be called orchestral alternative rock, or foot-stomping symphonics. They’re to be savored and ingested through all the senses like one does with groups like Beirut, Andrew Bird, Pink Martini or Devotchka."

- Anchorage Press

"an emotional and heartfelt journey with a band that clearly wants to take listeners down a sonic rabbit hole. Theatrical, sorrowful, vivid, enchanting."

-Album review by Monolith
