“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.
Suuns bring you their new video for the song “2020.” Directed by Sabrina Ratte, the video is a dazzling walk through Suuns live performance, shaken up with strobes and moving geometric shapes. What you see is really what you’re seeing – watch the video above or at Consequence of Sound, where it premiered this morning.
In addition to the new video, we are happy to share the pre-order for Suuns’ sophomore album, Images Du Futur. Out on March 5, the record is available at SC Distribution, Amazon and iTunes (comes with a free download of “2020”). When you order the deluxe bundle from SCD, you’ll receive Images Du Futur on CD and Lavender Smog colored vinyl (while supplies last), Zeroes QC vinyl, glossy poster featuring the cover art and a digital download of the new album (redeemable immediately upon purchase).
