“Up is down, day is night — not what it seems! Like Alice in Wonderland, stuck in-between” sings Jann Klose on the chorus of “Sugar My,” from his upcoming 7th studio album, “Surrender.”
One of two new singles released by indie pop artist Jann Klose has broken in to the Mediabase Top 40 activator chart, landing at #39 this week. The song, a commentary on the sometimes baffling and inexplicable state of the world today, is a cinematic pop gem co-written with hit songwriter Alex Forbes (Chic/Nile Rodgers, Taylor Dayne).
Jann recalls the writing session, “We wanted to create a feel of an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ vibe where there is a palatable sense of confusion and one is not sure what’s real and what’s not. We wrote it at the onset of the pandemic, so it was a strong reflection on how we were feeling ourselves!”
Released by Honey Rose Records, the song and music video for “Sugar My” are gaining momentum and airplay in the U.S. and South Africa. Filmed in Milford, CT, the high energy music video recently passed 120,000 views on YouTube. Jann partnered with director Alex Vishno and choreographer Eileen “EJ” Jaworowicz.
