Montreal quartet Suuns are back with their second album ‘Images Du Futur’ on Secretly Canadian this week, after their excellent debut ‘Zeroes, QC’ a couple of years ago. This time around the brooding tension is upped as they conjure a series of tense, elastic indiekraut slow-burners with minimal, repetitive rhythms and moody, simmering vocals implying a violence which rarely erupts into full-blown noise, instead opting for a persistent furrowed-brow chug that falls somewhere between The National and Beak>.
Phil keeps saying that it really reminds him of Clinic, and that’s probably because it does sound an awful lot like Clinic, but there are worse things to sound like I’m sure you’ll agree. There’s a bit of Heads-like distortion opening ‘Mirror Mirror’ but even here it proves a tease and subsides for a swirling, chugging bit of Tame Impala-esque psych which is very enjoyable. Restraint and repetition seem to be key this time around, making for an album that’s dark and velvety and insidiously groovy.
