Although not a concept album, the season of autumn figures prominently on Billy Sugarfix’s Carousel debut E.P. As an elementary school teacher, the idea of autumn representing a beginning has become ingrained in Billy Sugarfix’s psyche. Whereas the confusion and angst of relationships ending has been well documented in the pop canon, the drama involved in a relationship’s beginning is rarely addressed. So, this record seeks to explore the potential trials involved in a relationship’s beginning, often using autumn as a metaphor.
