Cherry Glazerr – Wasted Nun
Earlier in 2018, Suuns released their fourth album, Felt, a “joyous… build of brutalism and emotion,” according to NPR Music. The band has toured relentlessly throughout the year, and will be wrapping up 2018 with a European tour, which started just this week.
To celebrate these shows and finish off 2018, the band commissioned Montreal-based director Laura Gonçalves to make a video for Felt stand-out “X-ALT.” Of the video, Gonçalves says:
“‘X-ALT’ is like the amusement & attraction of movement, speed and intensity. The effects were created by plastic and analog processes, establishing paradoxes between the park and the dance group footage. What we see are the raw results of the captures, no post-production effects were applied. The video evolves organically and uncontrollably into specular and data moshing devices. Electronic clouds and multicolored echoes consume and burn on the musical ride.”
Felt was both a continuation and rebirth for Suuns. The Montreal quartet returned to beloved local facility Breakglass Studios (where they cut their first two albums [Zeroes QC and Images Du Futur] with Jace Lasek of The Besnard Lakes), but this time recording themselves at their own pace, over five fertile sessions spanning several months. A simultaneous stretching out and honing in, mixed to audiophile perfection by St. Vincent producer John Congleton (helmer of 2016’s Hold/Still), who flew up especially from Dallas to deploy his award-winning skills in situ.
