Blending aspects of dark electro, dissonant art rock, and plodding indie rock, Suuns, formerly named Zeroes, utilize minimalism in their wide-open (and often paranoid) sound. After their first EP, which was also titled Zeroes, they recorded a full-length with the Besnard Lakes' Jace Lasek at Breakglass Studios in their home city of Montreal. Upon Lasek's recommendation, the ten-song outing Zeroes QC got the attention of Secretly Canadian, and Suuns signed to the label in the autumn of 2010. That October the album was released, just as the group started touring with the Besnard Lakes and Land of Talk. Sophomore effort Images du Futur arrived three years later, further exploring the dark sounds the band began on its debut. The album was included in the longlist for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize. It was 2015 when Secretly Canadian released a collaborative record on which Suuns and friend Radwan Ghazi Moumneh of Jerusalem in My Heart had begun work in 2012. The long-labored album took years to complete, and found the band's minimal electronic approach winding around Moumneh's Arabic influences and complementary synthesizer sensibilities. Suuns then recorded their third proper album with producer John Congleton at his Dallas studio. Incorporating more electronics into the group's sound, Hold/Still appeared on Secretly Canadian in April of 2016. ~ Jason Lymangrover
