Suuns will release their second full-length album, ‘Images Du Futur’, via Secretly Canadian in the UK on 4th March 2013. The Montreal four-piece are also set to play a handful of UK and European dates including London’s Village Underground on the 5th Dec, followed by ATP later that month.

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.

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’.

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.”
