So I’m really digging this band Suuns. Somewhere between shoegaze and electronica to noise and dub, their music is subtle and dreamy, but filled with an abundance of great hooks and hip beats. Zeroes hits all the right notes for a band that meshes very distinct, separate genres that occasionally overlap. Zeroes begins with a dub-influenced drone and the lyrics I killed a man when I was 11 years old, but I’m innocent. It begins a whirlwind of an EP that jumps between genres with frequency and fluency.
Opening with “The Disappearance of the Skyscraper”, Zeroes quickly enters “PVC (EP Version)”, a song that meshes that same dub-drone of the opener with bouts of shoegaze and epic post-rock drone. “Arena (EP Version)” starts with electronic synth-like beats and eventually enters into wispy, dreamy lyrics and enormous guitar noise both alarming and brilliant. Suuns, like I noted before, hits all the right notes. Zeroes is the perfect portrayal taking that which has been done before and making it fresh and exciting.
This is borderline obsession, people. Seriously.
Secretly Canadian is currently offering Zeroes as a free download.
