'City of Light' is the first single release on the 4 track debut EP ‘Natural High’ from the enigmatic Sydney based multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Sugarz in collaboration with producer Benny Badge.

Kimberly Aviso known in Sydney’s local music community strapped with a guitar, looper and an eclectic musical palette, spearheads Sugarz. Sugarz is a creative collaborative revolving door project consisting of various producers and musicians. Each cluster of music created is different from the previous release, creating a catalogue of music as open-minded as a Sugarz intends to be.

With distribution release from UK label Gulf Point Records, City of Light is a throwback sound to 80’s boogie with a perfect splash of pop vocal stylistics to compliment the dynamic nostalgia captured in City of Light. Produced by Melbourne electronica, boogie and funk producer Benny Badge aka Freekwency, an Oberheim DX for the drum rolls and Yamaha DX-7 keys was used to replicate an authentic sound most commonly used in 80’s funk and boogie production.

What shines in this track is her descriptive and compelling storytelling, transporting you to another place in time where kings, queens and Shakespeare reigned supreme. The juxtaposition of Sugarz’ vivid lyrical content on a backdrop of 80’s boogie creates a seamless marriage between two different eras.

City of Light will be released through with a limited edition 7’ vinyl pressing and video release soon!


We'll rome the streets like
We're Kings & Queens
Another place, another time
There's my favourite second hand store
I'm pretty sure
I bought everything I owned from

Cigarettes and coffee stains on the table tops
In restaurants that Edith used to go
I get lost in the aisles of Shakespeare & Co
Oscar Wilde's lipstick tombstone
Flowers on Morrison's at Père Lachaise
Such a sight, a place like this

In the City of Light

Aperos by Canal Saint-Martin
As we watch the sun go down
Sometime soon we could visit the Lourve
But I'd much rather be at Centre Pompidou

Cigarettes and coffee stains on the table tops
In restaurants that Edith used to go
I get lost in the aisles of Shakespeare & Co
Playing Jacques Brel on the record player
A voice so beautiful and loved
Such a place, such a place like this

In the City of Light


released June 22, 2015
Arranged and produced by Benny Badge
