New Album Images Du Futur for 4th March
Available for pre-order now via Secretly Canadian
Suuns - who release their second full-length , Images Du Futur on 4th March
via Secretly Canadian - have shared the video for their first single, '2020'. 
Directed by artist Sabrina Ratté, the black and white set piece is a dazzling combination of shifting geometric shapes and patterns mixed with the band's dissected live performance.
The band says, "Sabrina is a good friend and an amazing video artist. We've wanted to work with her for some time and this video was the ideal project. We shot some shots and she did her thing. What a trip." Like a desaturated trip to the Black Lodge, the video strobes to the woozy and vaguely sinister sound of "2020."

"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

After touring North America and Europe extensively throughout 2011, the band spent the winter and spring of 2012 writing & recording in their hometown, Montreal. 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 ideas on their critically acclaimed first record, Zeroes, QC.
The first single, "Edie's Dream," starts with a single repetitive bass line from which layers build & rise - first drums, then a wash of white noise; echoes of guitar, then chanted vocals. The song's clever shifts are jazz-touched and delicate, almost subliminal. It all makes for a stark, skeletal boogie — more an astral projection than a song, "Edie's Dream" shows us where Suuns are headed.
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.
