I discovered Sumo Cyco in 2017 during their co-headline tour of the UK with a local (New Zealand) favourite of mine, Devilskin. They very quickly climbed the ranks to become my favourite band because of their ability to combine pop hooks with heavy music in a way that hits me right in the dopamines. Additionally, the aesthetic of the band is just , combining colour with a little bit of darkness.
I have only had the opportunity to see them live once so far (in November 2019), but they tour the UK fairly often outside of pandemic-times, so I am definitely going to see them again next time they make it over here.
