    Experimental rockers Suuns celebrated a blockbuster 2016, highlighted by an acclaimed album in Hold/Still and countless memorable festival performances (Primavera SoundLe Guess Who). After keeping a low profile most of last year, the Canadian outfit is back today with news of a forthcoming album.

    Dubbed Felt, it’s due out on shelves March 2nd through Secretly Canadian. Its 11 tracks were recorded at Breakglass Studios in Montreal, where their first two LPs also came to fruition. Renowned studio mastermind John Congleton (St. Vincent, Cloud Nothings) also flew up from Dallas to mix the entire effort.

    In a statement, Suuns singer/guitarist Ben Shemie described Felt as “definitely looser than our last one. It’s not as clinical. There’s more swagger.” That specific kind of energy permeates throughout the album’s lead single, “Watch You, Watch Me”, which has also been shared today. As if Tame Impala went all in on the hallucinogens and discovered a portal into an alternate universe, the track finds Suuns jamming out for a generous six minutes, their blissful guitars bent and swirled into blurs of colorful noise.
