I’ve enjoyed the new Suuns material from their album Felt, which is really just one tune, but this brand new one is really something special. The song is a gradual stroll, slowly moving in step with the visual elements here; the vocals almost feel like clouds rolling over the musical element. You’ll easily find yourself captivated by the digital images that step in line with a wonky synth/keyboard element; it leaves you imbalanced in a certain way, which I think sinks you further into the track’s emotional vibe. Felt will be released on March 2nd via Secretly Canadian. They’ll also be here in Austin for Levitation.
The folks over at Secretly Canadian rarely disappoint, and today is no exception as Suuns have announced their new album,Felt, will be out March 2 via that label. From this upcoming release, the band has shared a new single called “Watch You, Watch Me” which you can watch below. It’s a high energy number– there’s essentially no empty space in the mix, as instrument overlaps instrument, vocals distorted to sound like another wave of synthesizers. Different than anything else you’ll hear today, give the track below a listen and get stoked for Suuns’ new release.
In this day and age, it’s sort of a rarity that a music video will fully engage me for its complete duration. With this new video for “Instrument”from Canada’s Suuns, I find that this is not the case, as I’ve watched this a few times over. The electronic pulses and drones of Suuns music is perfectly accompanied by the black and white repetition of the simple video, and you will find yourself engrossed in the whole aesthetic of the clip. Sometimes, all you need is a brief reprieve into some other world, and this video for “Instrument” is sure to give you that. Also be sure to check out their albumHold/Stillwhich came out earlier this year on Secretly Canadian.
Suuns, if you weren’t already aware, are a Montreal based group, making psych rock tunes. Today, they’ve announced the release of their third full length album,Hold/Still,and shared a new single from that record.This track, “Translate,” is a bonafide grower, as the band layers element upon element, building up their sound slowly but surely in a blend of psych tinged guitars and hazy vocals. Make sure you watch the trippy video for this new single below, check out the remix of the track here, if you’re into that sort of thing, and then get ready for the band’s forthcoming release, Hold/Still,which is due out April 15th via Secretly Canadian.
