Biography

Montreal's Suuns spent the winter and spring of 2012 writing and recording Images du Futur. Their sessions were concurrent with the Quebec student protests that started in February of 2012 and continued through September of this year. Set against a backdrop lead singer Ben Shemie calls "a climate of excitement, hope and frustration," Suuns aimed for an expansion of the musical ... Read more in Amazon's Suuns Store

Product Description

BBC Review

Recognised as ones to watch in 2011 by quarters of the music press with ears pressed rather closer to the underground sounds emanating from the other side of the Atlantic, Montreal quartet Suuns are a beguiling group that take wonderfully immersive, transfixing, repetitive electro elements and fuse them to quasi-stoner rock grooves and shoegaze atmospheres. At times Zeroes QC, their debut long-player, simultaneously stirs thoughts of Cluster and Comets on Fire, of Suicide gate-crashing the first studio sessions of a reformed Slowdive. It’s enthralling – perhaps not because of any pronounced originality, granted, but certainly due to how every element sits so well in the overall mix.

Produced by Jace Lasek of The Besnard Lakes – he’s also worked on records by the likes of Young Galaxy, Wolf Parade and Patrick Watson – these tracks wander relatively far and wide in tone and texture. Soon as the listener thinks that they have the group pegged, along comes a number to toss that conclusion into the wildest winds. Pie XI is an example of such a side-step from an established sound, a chirruping, unsettling swirl of creepy child-like vocals and low-end pulsations. This, straight after the propulsive beats and clean, Interpol-y guitars of Arena. A comparison to Autolux isn’t too wide of the mark when Suuns are following a linear trajectory, Liam O’Neill’s drums exact and Ben Shemie’s vocals clear – but when the tangents come, they’re as distracting as a streaker interrupting play during a vital penalty shoot-out. Whether that’s a plus or minus point is down to the individual.

As a result, there’s not quite an established cohesion from piece to piece – no flawless thread that binds these tracks together as a whole. But this can easily be forgiven, given that it’s a debut (a better-realised packaging of the band’s obvious potential will surely follow), and that the stylistic detours are always taken with confidence. Suuns aren’t mixing up their genre bag just because they feel that they should; they’re taking the listener out of their comfort zone because, to them, it’s totally natural to do so. Fans of the above-cited comparisons, plus the squelchy dance-prog-rock of the likes of Trans Am and Parts & Labor, are advised to check out Zeroes QC just as soon as the January blues have dissipated. Or sooner, indeed, as this sort of immediate and effortlessly enjoyable fare is certain to lift any grey skies ennui.

Format: Audio CD
Montreal is due widespread resurgence, and Suuns may well prove aftershock enough with their often highly-likeable debut. With precise production courtesy of Jace Lasek of The Besnard Lakes, Zeroes QC was never going to be straightforward. Yet, despite his brand of cosmic psych-rock being strongly linear, there's barely a trace of such direction or coherence here - and that's not a bad thing.

Opening with an arresting, curiously catchy, glitchy, scratchy dub/synth pad drawl, "Armed For Peace" handclaps its way into a heavier guitar passage that lulls only to allow Ben Shemie`s dreamy, clipped vocals out to play. It's a track and introduction that half brings to mind post-Screamadelica Primal Scream-like experimentation, if, say, Vanishing Point had fancied being more tangible.

It's a surprise then when later on Zeroes QC we encounter such disparate elements as the free-form sax blowout found imbedded in "Gaze", lengthy electronic-led grooves, and disturbed whispery murmurs and cavalier guitar chimes (such as those that dominate the latter parts of "Arena" - the earlier parts being as close to the generic "indie rock" the band reputedly so steadfastly tried to avoid).

On "Pie IX", Shemie screws with his voice so as to render it unintelligible above bottomed-out wobble, before the track then becomes a very odd outing that gibbers glibly while uneasy feedback slowly seeps in to pulse its eventual dominance.

Brilliant record, heavy post-punk influences, most notably british band clinic. Occasionally some of the songs run together a bit, but all in all a fantastic listen from beginning to end.

This is an amazing discovery for anyone with contemporary music taste 5 Jun. 2013
By Ivar Zeile - Published on Amazon.com

I read about this band a few weeks ago in the New Yorkers listings section and checked them out on Spotify. I thought both their albums were great, so much so that I purchased them both for my collection. After a few weeks of processing, I can honestly say this is one of the best discoveries of the last couple of years, I am totally hooked and absolutely love the variety of sounds and concepts that Suuns are projecting while maintaining a cohesive unity. 5 stars is almost not enough, this is simply great work. I've enjoyed a few of their related music videos on Vimeo as well, this is obviously a band that has their whole package put together in a great way to satisfy today's music and art lovers.
