SONG PREMIERE: Sugarplum Fairies Ft. Silvia Ryder Deliver Evocative Ballad “Tears”

Iconic 90’s dream pop outfit Sugarplum Fairies share their first new release in years and it retains their haunting soundscapes that blur the lines of dream pop, goth and otherwise experimental guitar rock .

Glide is premiering the song and video (below) for the brand new single “Tears” – the fourth release off LA-based band’s upcoming collection of songs and re-imaginings Altar Songs 1998-2021 (out December 3rd via Starfish Records). Featuring Viennese chanteuse Silvia Ryder’s signature breathy croon and a rich blend of dreamy textures and lackadaisical rhythms, “Tears” is a swoon-worthy melancholic slow-burner with a shoegaze-tinged vibe. The accompanying music video features Sugarplum Fairies’ highly aesthetic stylized tape-saturated footage of a sweet day in a life of a father and daughter on a perfect sundrenched Los Angeles day. As nostalgic and emotional as the song, the video is the perfect cinematic accompaniment. 

On the song, frontwoman Silvia Ryder shares that: ““Tears” is the only brand-new song on Altar Songs 1998-2021, co-written and produced by Marlon Rabenreither of Gold Star. It is kind of a crooner-style ballad that disintegrates towards the end.”
