Suuns will soon be heading to the UK to start an early Summer tour, with the band stopping off at Glasgow’s Captain’s Rest on May15th which I’ll be looking to attend.  Before that though, Secretly Canadian has issued a new promo video for single ‘Pie IX’. ‘Zereos QC‘ is such a strange, beguiling record —  although I think it is brilliant. Likewise, ‘Pie IX’ is a strange choice for single, though it does have it’s quirks, and perhaps something like ‘Sweet Nothing’ would have been a better choice.  But then, what do I know? Judge for yourselves!

Blending aspects of dark electro, dissonant art rock, and plodding indie rock, Suuns, formerly named Zeroes, utilize minimalism in their wide-open (and often paranoid) sound. After their first EP, which was also titled Zeroes, they recorded a full-length with the Besnard Lakes‘ Jace Lasek at Breakglass Studios in their home city of Montreal. Upon Lasek‘s recommendation, the ten-song outing,Zeroes QC, got the attention of Secretly Canadian, and Suunssigned to the label in the autumn of 2010. That October the album was released, just as the group started touring with the Besnard Lakes and Land of Talk.
