“[Suuns] most restrained and finely detailed record to date.” – (8/10) Drowned in Sound

“do yourselves a favour, find a dark room, a bag of Kettle Chips and don’t come out until the fifth listen.” – (7/10) God Is in the TV

Hold/Still conjures up the existential mood of floating in deep space. Lonely – but also out of this world.” –Clash

Hold/Still, the third studio album from Suuns, is an enigmatic thing: an eerily beautiful, meticulously played suite of music that embraces opposites and makes a virtue of cognitive dissonance. It is a record that does not give up its secrets easily. A natural step on from their two previous albums, 2011s Zeroes QC & 2013s Images du Futur, and yet a marked departure, Hold/Still is a cerebral exploration of how to take live and analogue instruments and create a deeply textured electronic record. In May 2015, they decamped to Dallas, Texas to work with Grammy-winning producer John Congleton and for three intense weeks they recorded by day and stewed in their cramped apartment by night.

“It felt like we were on a mission – looking for something to take us out of our element, or that might seep into our music”, says the band.

Mission accomplished.
