SUUNS – IMAGES DU FUTUR

“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

HAPPY RELEASE DAY! Exitmusic’s “Passage” Out Now!

Grab your copy from SC Distribution or find your nearest record store. EM is busy wrapping up their tour – see final dates HERE. Don’t miss them at this year’s Hopscotch Fest!

Love for Passage

“Their debut album proper quivers and quakes with the cinematic electronics and emotional abandonment of a soundtrack to Armageddon. But for all its bleak, dark fissures, bright and tender lights serenely burst out with hope.” – NME

“Passage surges, subsides and enthralls like a gothic Sigur Ros. Church’s guitar gives good Sturm und Drang but it’s Palladino’s vocal that’s centre-stage; occassionally a brooding murmur but more often a husky force of nature that could give the vengeful sirens of Greek mythology a run for their money.” 4 Stars – Mojo

“It broods and rumbles, full of anger and anguish and loneliness, before erupting in a squall of tortured release. It’s mostly bleak and intensely emotional, but also beautiful…But even (or perhaps especially) in its bleakest moments, Passage is one the most memorable and absorbing records you’ll hear in 2012.” – NPR
