Carla J Easton’s ‘Sugar Honey’ Carries A Quiet Assertion

Posted by

Carla J Easton has shared new song ‘Sugar Honey’.

The new single is the title track of her upcoming solo album, slated to land on October 20th. A flurry of singles have ignited interest in her latest project, astute pop songwriting blended with lyrics showing multi-faceted maturity.

Out now, ‘Sugar Honey’ is a delicious feast of pop ideas, with Carla J Easton’s fondness for bubblegum melody coming to the fore. There’s a quiet strength here, though, a gentle assertion that pushes back against threatening spaces and the male gaze.

Prompted by a walk home through the streets of Glasgow, she became aware of the eyes peering after here. The song took hold, blending the freedom she found from walking, with the pressures women face everyday.

“As soon as I got home I finished writing it,” says Carla. “I hate the fact that I can’t walk where I want to walk, without thinking about my own safety, and it’s all because of the actions of men – unsolicited attention or advances.”

Tune in now.
