The American Sugar sound is an eclectic influence of styles. Brother Bobby is influenced by the classic rock sounds and the thick guitar tones of the seventies, early eighties punk, and the nineties grunge rock. Miss Sugar's very unique style arose from years of performing gospel in church, classical training during her college years and some influence from the Tampa Death Metal scene. Sir Nhoj is heavily influenced by the Progressive Rock, Funk and Acid Jazz sounds from his youth in the Philippines. Odd time signatures and tempo changes with catchy melodies and harmonies are essential to the sound of the band. American Sugar's sound will continue to evolve as recent member, Miss Terror, brings her own influences and ideas to the music.
American Sugar's lyrical content deals with the problems in American society both politically and culturally. The message that the band hopes to promote includes exposing hypocrisy within the political parties, the media and organized religion.
