In 2009 Suuns entered Breakglass Studios with Jace Lasek of The Besnard Lakes co-producing. They wanted to create something that couldn't be pigeonholed as simply indie rock. The resulting 'Zeroes QC' is a propulsive collusion between pop, post-punk and experimental rock - one that allows the group to musically shapeshift without losing any of the sense of tension and unease that runs throughout the record.
Suuns possess a rare trait in rock music: restraint. It's apparent in album opener 'Armed For Peace', which starts like a robot breaking down in a desert. The song's mechanic beat plods like ironshoed footsteps as the melody of a wheezing synth mirrors the crackling sound of old transistors and circuitry being cooked in the sun.

Few bands this young are operating on quite this scale, and fewer still have the brass - and the patience - to pull off a big, glitzy, complex record like 'Zeroes QC' - Pitchfork.
