Two weeks ago we announced our signing of Montreal’s Suuns to Secretly Canadian. We also presented the world with it’s first taste of the Suuns sound via a free EP which you can still download HERE. Now we are proud to announce the details of Suuns’ first full-length album Zeroes QC, which will be available in the U.S. October 12 and early 2011 in the U.K.
Zeroes QC was recorded at Breakglass Studios in Montreal with The Besnard Lakes’ Jace Lasek at the production helm. Lasek worked with Suuns during a busy year that included recording new albums by Stars and Land of Talk among others, but he still had time to drop us an inital understated note saying “Thought you might like to hear them. They’re pretty cool.” Zeroes QC furthers the sound found on the band’s opening EP. Still present is the slinky, sexy, opaque and razor sharp electro rock, but in Lasek’s deft hands Suuns’ sound is defined and refined, more fully explored. From the cranky beats of opener “Armed For Peace” to the funeral organ wash of closer “Organ Blues” Zeroes QC crashes, burns, rebuilds, explodes, rinses and repeats. However, through it all a groove -the kind that begs for an open road on a steamy summer night- keeps the bpm at a steady clip. Below you’ll find a download of “Arena” the first single from Zeroes QC and the quintessence of the Suuns’ sound.
