Sugarplum Fairy is a pop-rock band from Borlänge, Sweden. The members took the name from a version of the Beatles' song "A Day in the Life" where John Lennon counts the song in by saying "sugar-plum-fairy, sugar-plum-fairy". Sugarplum Fairy was founded in 1998 by Victor and Carl Noren and Kristian Gidlund.

The band has released several demos before getting contracted in 2004, releasing the EP Stay Young, that received generally positive reviews. Later they released their first single, "Sweet Jackie", from their first full length album "Young & Armed" that was released later that year(September 29, 2004). The band toured heavily in Sweden, Japan and Germany, and released the debut album in different editions in both Japan and Germany in early 2005. In 2006 they put out their second record "First Round First Minute". They signed onto EMI Records in 2004.

Apart from their music, the band is also famous for the fact that the two singers in the band are brothers of Gustaf Norén, singer in Mando Diao.
