“Images Du Futur is exciting in a way that few albums manage to be, dangerous and compelling like a first cigarette or fumbled sexual encounter, and nothing here quite seems real: these ten tracks exist in a half-light, a nocturnal fog a step removed from lucid thought. And a long, long way from anything routine.” – The Line of Best Fit
“On an album that rarely shakes off its shroud of unease, Suuns paint a pretty bleak picture of all our tomorrows, but their own dazzling ‘…Futur’ looks assured.” – NME
“So it is with great excitement that we receive their second LP offering, Images Du Futur, which builds on the ‘Bambi’/’Red Song’ energy and presents us with a refined image of what terrifying power Suuns are capable of.” – KEXP
“Images du Futur is a heavy, slow rock album that will be jarring for those expecting big hooks, but it’s also rewarding for anyone willing to formulate their own interpretation.” – Montreal Gazette

“The gentle psychedelia of Suuns is perfectly suited to the placid, unsettling visions that vocalist Ben Shemie is singing about here.” –PITCHFORK
“SUUNS is clearly still making music that grabs your insides first and then engages your brain after, just on this one effort, they are doing it in a gentler, more restrained way – like the stroke of a lion’s paw before it unfurls its claws and tears your heart out.” –NOISEY
“…if “Edie’s Dream” is any indication, the foursome will be heading a little deeper down the rabbit hole on their upcoming album, Images Du Futur…Creepy and meditative vocals, delayed guitar, and a spine-tingling sense that some lunatic is patiently waiting around that shadowy corner to stab you in the neck. Fun stuff…” –CHICAGO READER
Hey there! Wanna see a live video of SUUNS performing “Edie’s Dream”? Of course you do. Here they are performing the song at La Vera Storia’s Dijktheater [SUBBACULTCHA HQ] in Amsterdam during tour. Watch above.
The track is from their forthcoming album, Images Du Futur. You can pre-order the record at SC Distribution and get the record on Lavender Smog colored vinyl (all the cool kids are doing it! PROMISE).
Just to sweeten things up a bit >> you can see Suuns live in concert starting this March! They’ll tour with The Besnard Lakes and We Are Wolves. See all dates HERE.
