From Milwaukee, Wisconsin, via a few European labels, and finally via Portland, Oregon’s Dirtnap Records, comes the delicious track “Make Up Your Mind” from Sugar Stems’ sophomore LP Can’t Wait. Fresh, sweet and ridiculously infectious, both the song and the lovely black and white video Cole Juntila shot and edited for it, showcase the vivid power pop this Midwest foursome rocks so well. Led by Betsy Heibler’s bright as a bell vocals which are delightfully reminiscent of 80’s-era Jane Wiedlin and Susanna Hoffs, the Sugar Stems’ jangly, accessible sound is instant ear-candy for those craving some smart, straightforward pop. With a sizable following already in Japan, Austria, Germany and Italy, it’s high time the States jumps on the Sugar Stems’ bandwagon. Make Up Your Mind is just the single to make that happen. Check out the video below.
