Going through the e-mails from various publicity/management artist.
This one just caught me by surprise.
It is the Montreal band Suuns (formerly known as Zeroes).
Kind of kicking myself that I missed their show in Ottawa around the spring time back when they were called Zeroes.
It features members of:
- Ben Shemie
- Liam O’Neill (ex-Silver Starling, ex-Young Galaxy)
- Max Henry (Young Galaxy)
- Joseph Yarmush (Land Of Talk)
Apparently the band got signed to Secretly Canadian.
Their music is very indie minimalist rhythms alterna-rock.
They remind me of Women but without the fuzzy vocal distortion.
The EP is free to download.
Listening to the whole six track EP.
It has this lo-fi dark grungey guitar riff kind of feeling to it.
There is alot of British new-wave influence and doesn’t have that “Montreal-esque” sound.
Can’t wait for their full-length album which drops on October 12, 2010
