SUUNS
Premiere New Video for "Edie's Dream"
North American & EU Tour Dates Announced
New Album Images Du Futur for 4th March 
 
Suuns have premiered the video for their first single, "Edie's Dream". The video follows a mysterious young girl through the woods to "Edie's" moody soundscape. The song's bass line throbs under woozy synths while time slows, images fade, and our protagonist digs a hole in the ground. 
 
 
Directed by the band, the video is set in the Quebec woods near Montreal, where Suuns spent the winter and spring of 2012 writing & recording. The bucolic setting recasts the song's skeletal boogie into a hazy vision. Suuns provided a group statement saying, "About a 2 hour drive north of Montreal there is a lake and some paths that run through the woods. That's where we met Edie. This video was shot in the late fall, just a week before the snow would arrive and make this shoot impossible."  
 
They explain, "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."
 
EARLY PRAISE 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
SUUNS will release their second full-length album, Images Du Futur, via Secretly Canadian on 4th March 2013. The Montreal four-piece have confirmed headline UK Dates for May.

Produced once again by Jace Lasek from Besnard Lakes, Images Du Futur blasts out of the gate with "Powers of Ten," laying out a sort of manifesto for the record in the very first lines: "Got it together/I read in the paper/all of theses strangers/stranger and stranger.../No, no, no, no, how you try and remember/how all of these pieces/all fit together." Shemie says of the process, "As a band we were trying to look at our music from further and further away, seeing more details in the picture as we expanded the landscape." 
 
Suuns will be appearing in Austin this March for SXSW. The band will also be doing an extensive tour through Europe this spring, as well as a tour throughout the US and Canada, with a stop at Canadian Music Fest's Buzzfactor Series. 
 
 
PRAISE FOR Zeroes, QC.
 
"Montreal's Suuns have their sights set on the brass ring. Zeroes QC, their dank, oily, frequently metamorphosing debut LP, is one of the more industrious first goes I've heard in ages-- sleek, moody space-prog, self-assured, meticulous, and foreboding." PITCHFORK

"Suuns, from Montreal, are drone scholars...[with] rigorous strategy behind every gorgeous onslaught."  NEW YORK TIMES

"[they] play with an unhinged intensity uncharacteristic of any band in their genre." DEATH + TAXES

"A cunning fusion of kraut, post-punk, stoner rock, and disco funk tempered with a muted emotional disquiet" BROOKLYN VEGAN

"This could already be one of the debuts of the year." The Fly 

"From Zeroes to… heroes? Better believe it." NME
