RIYL: Clinic, Gardens and Villa
Label: Secretly Canadian
Within seconds of Suuns’ newest single Watch You, Watch Me, it’s pretty clear that they’re exploring new territory.Â Always experimenting with new sounds, it’s apparent that they’ve thrown the traditional guitar path out the window and opted for some synthy futurama chic.Â Â Ben Shemie’s robotic vocals sound like a cross between Tom Fec (Tobacco, Black Moth Super Rainbow) andÂ Ade Blackburn (Clinic), a deceptively catchy choice that has me smashing the repeat button.
Felt marks Suuns’ 5th studio release and, if you’ve come alongside hisÂ ever-expanding eclectic journeyÂ thus far, you’re bound to love it.Â Secretly Canadian has some limited edition clear vinyl copies after the ‘buy’ link.Â No quantity announced, but I imagine there are quite a few.Â Check out the music video to Watch You, Watch Me below.
Itâ€™s a suitably outrĂ© image for Felt, which breaks with Suunsâ€™ earlier darkness for a more optimistic ambience. The recordâ€™s playful atmosphere is echoed by its double meaning title. â€śSome people might think of the material,â€ť muses Ben. â€śI like that that could be misconstrued. Also itâ€™s to have felt and not to feel â€“ a little introspective, but that feelingâ€™s in the past.â€ť
