Suuns have shared the second single, “Paralyzer,” from their forthcoming album, Hold/Still, due out April 15th on Secret City. With the single comes the second in a trilogy of videos directed by Charles-André Codérre and a remix by Vril who says “That morbid sounding vocal and that synth trumpet are the base of my remix – both hardly edited.” This follows the first single, “Translate,” and its tandem remixes from Dark Sky. Suuns’ first two singles from Hold/Still are an appropriate introduction to the album as a whole and the accompanying remixes work in lockstep with the originals showcasing the band’s new, adventurous electronic sound.

With the help of John Congleton (St Vincent, The War On Drugs, Sleater-Kinney), Suuns have created an enigmatic thing: an eerily beautiful, meticulously played suite of music that embraces opposites and makes a virtue of cognitive dissonance. The 11 songs within are simultaneously psychedelic, but austere; sensual, but cold; organic, but electronic; tense sometimes to the brink of mania, but always retaining perfect poise and control. The result is undoubtedly Suuns’ most focused album to date, the sound of a band crafting a guitar music that feels unbeholden to clear traditions or genre brackets.

Suuns will tour in support of Hold/Still this spring. A full list of shows is below.
