Sugar Candy Mountain has today shared the music video for the track 'Mar-a-Lago' off their latest album Do Right

shows the band in a typically 70's pastiche disco scene that combines Abba stylings with contemporaries such as Daft Punk.
is out now on PIAPTK Records. Band member Ash Reiter said of the album:
"much of the album was written during the election and inauguration of Trump. Like many, I found myself trying to understand how this could be possible, wondering what to do next. Of course as a musician I wrote a song. What I saw was a lost generation, a mass of people that felt voiceless and vaguely unsatisfied with life. All these people were looking for something and hoped Trump could give it to them."
'Mar-a-Lago' is written from that generation's perspective, pleading: "Lead me on, lead me somewhere, I just want what I deserve/ Lead me on, lead me somewhere, make me someone, make me yours". Reiter continued:
"I have felt all these feelings; wanting someone to show the way, someone to satisfy your unnamed gnawing desires, to matter, to belong. When broken down this way I could begin to empathize with people I previously couldn't even fathom."
Do Right features the band remaining rooted inÂ 60âs and 70âs rock, with signature honey-sweet vocals. Leaning more heavily on synthesizer than previous records which gives the album a more contemporary feel.
