Introducing… the cutest band ever, The Suzan! One of the most buzzed about acts in this year’s SXSW lineup, this all-girl new wave techno/electropop group from Japan are a far stride from the all-girl bands we’re used to seeing, full of angst and heavy guitar. Last night they opened up for Chromeo at work and were the highlight of my night. Not only do they have a great sound, but they’re cute to boot! Dressed up with neon face paint and bright clothes straight from Tokyo’s fashion district, it was really refreshing to see something so unique at the Commodore.
The track “Home” was their first single and is the only good one I could find online, apart from a couple of great covers they have on YouTube. They played a new track last night called Get It or something along those lines and I can’t wait to post that for you at a later date because it was rad.
They’re an acquired taste and are verging on gimmicky, but I thoroughly enjoyed their set so I thought I would share.
