Suuns keep you guessing.

It started with their debut album Zeroes QCwhich mixed a sub-bass groundwork with post-punk/new wave melodies to keep the thing together, like the instability of Clinic and the whiplash of Liars. You can already hear the kind of psych confidence in the band’s first single, “Edie’s Dream” from the band’s sophomore album Images Du Futur. Today, the band debuts their new single “2020” with a dizzying video directed by visual artist Sabrina Ratté.

The single opens with a slide guitar riff like the death rattle of an ambulance. As jarring and dissonant it sounds, it’s too alluring to be an accident, which may as well be Sunns’ catchphrase. Place that atop a wobbly bass, singer Ben Shemie’s hushed vocals, and “2020” becomes so sultry in the ears that it messes with your equilibrium. It’s then that this epileptic, disorienting video really starts to gel with the song.

Images Du Futur is out March 5th via Secretly Canadian, and supporting the release the band will embark on a 43-date world tour, including a stop at SXSW in Austin.
