Suuns - "Gaze" Live Video (PopMatters Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

8 July 2011

"Gaze" is the "kind of muscled, brooding rock that Robert Smith would love, combining thick walls of distorted guitar with rattling synths to solid effect."
 

Back in October 2010, PopMatters’ Matthew Fiander wrote about Suuns’ debut Zeroes QC, highlighting the impressive intensity of album opener “Armed for Peace” where guitars come crashing out of a previously mellow moment, which is “built as much on restraint as on bravado, and when Suuns are firing on all cylinders on Zeroes QC, that is the power they’re capable of.” We were equally impressed with “Gaze”, which Fiander described as “the kind of muscled, brooding rock that Robert Smith would love, combining thick walls of distorted guitar with rattling synths to solid effect.” That’s on full display with the premiere today of this live take on “Gaze”, which was directed by Daniel Ryan of ForNoOne.tv.
