Suzerain are a London 5 piece dedicated to making intense, burning music from pounding drums, fuzzy bass lines and chiming broken guitars creating a distinct yet hook laden sound. They create a brooding cinematic atmosphere with the music and the lyrics speak about living in and with a 21st century Britain.
They have spent the best part of 2013 and 2014 recording their second album with acclaimed producer and Steve Lyon (Depeche Mode, The Cure, Siouxsie Sioux) resulting in a more streamlined, precise, and unhinged record.
The first release from the as yet untitled record is a double A side out in September 2014 reflecting the dual nature of the bands personality. “Dark Dark” an ominous futuristic tale of a terrible town where terrible things happen, and “Manhattan” a dream like song about coming to and realising where you are.
On record or in the flesh they are a commanding presence and must be heard and seen.
