Early Love for IMAGES DU FUTUR

“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

REMIX // Dungeonesse Take on John Grant’s “Black Belt”


Dungeonesse have taken on John Grant’s dancefloor fix and turned it into a “love-drunk woozy rework of the subterranean four-on-the-floor banger.” The track comes from Grant’s forthcoming record Pale Green Ghosts. Stream below or at NOISEY.

Here’s a wee little reminder that Dungeonesse’s self-titled debut will be out on May 14. Listen to “Shucks” and “Drive You Crazy” for a bit of a preview.

WATCH // SUUNS Premiere “Edie’s Dream” Music Video at NOISEY, Announce Spring Tour Dates

VICE’s Noisey brings you the new music video for SUUNS’ “Edie’s Dream.” Directed by SUUNS themselves, the video follows a mysterious girl through the Quebec woods. It’s the same area where the band spent time writing and recording Images Du Futur. SUUNS tell us,”At first, ‘Edie’s Dream’ started as a kind of nightmare, with burial themes and the cold and lonely woods. But gradually, it melted into a kind of bittersweet daydream. Edie is stunning, she is family to the band and at only 13, she carries herself with the poise and confidence of someone who understands the music, understands the cold, understands dreaming and its different layers.” WATCH ABOVE!

SUUNS are going on tour! They will head south for Austin’s SXSW this March. Then it’s back to Canada and over to Europe for a long stretch of shows! See the full list below!
