SUUNS will drop their new EP, Fiction, on October 30th via Secret City Records. Ahead of the album’s release, the Montreal band has shared the title track. “Fiction” was inspired by BJ Burton’s work with Low and is about time moving simultaneously fast and slow.
On the FICTION EP, new sounds and sonic directions are fashioned out of old. A year-long period of limited resources and contact inspired the band to reflect on the various environments in which they’ve created music over the years: to comb through their previous sounds and creative approaches, and fuse them together with new ideas, ultimately producing a sort of future/past alchemy. The FICTION EP is as much a project of curation as it is one of creation: sifting, re-imagining, and re-framing, sometimes completely disassembling and then building from the ground up. Each song is a live-off-the-floor recording that was then taken into isolation and re-worked. It’s the sound of SUUNS regrouping, and then poised, and then driving towards the future.
