Suuns (Ben Shemie, Joseph Yarmush, Max Henry, Liam O’Neill) absolutely tore it up at Elsewhere in Brooklyn. As the boys round out their North American tour, it is clear that the enthusiasm from fans over the new record has been contagious. The Canadian band’s newest release, Felt, experiments with song structure and emotion in a way that separates it from the rest of their discography. The boys played both new material and old (including crowd favorites Powers of Ten and 2020) in an immersive set with a level of confidence and intensity that captivated the dancing crowd. Suuns has 8 shows left on the east coast before they begin the Asian and European legs of their tour, so if you haven’t seen them yet, get your tickets!
