Sugar Plant is a duo from Tokyo (female singer and male guitarist) that plays slow, mellow psychedelic rock in the vein of Galaxie 500. The single Cloudy (Turntable, 1994) and the album Hiding Place (Pop Narcotic, 1995) offer mildly decadente, low-key ballads that seem to rehash over and over again the third Velvet Underground album.

After another competent imitation of Galazy 500 (Cage Of The Sun, on the eponymous 1996 EP), the album After After Hours (World Domination, 1997) has crowned their ascent in the firmament of rock balladry with humble yet elusive threnodies like Licorice and Behind The Door.

Sugar Plant č un duo di Tokyo (cantante femmina e chitarrista maschio) che suona un lento e dolce rock psichedelico alla stregua dei Galaxie 500. Il singolo Cloudy (Turntable, 1994) e l'album Hiding Place (Pop Narcotic, 1995) offrono ballads sobrie e vagamente decadentistche che sembrano riproporre pių e pių volte il terzo album dei Velvet Underground. Dopo un'altra imitazione competente dei Galaxie 500 ( Cage Of The Sun, sull'omonimo EP del 1996), l'album After After Hours (World Domination, 1997) ha coronato la loro ascesa nel firmamento della ballad rock con umili ma elusive trenodie come Licorice e Behind The Door .
