SUSU – “TURNT”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE
New York rock and roll outfit SUSU return with the final track ‘Turnt’, taken off their upcoming album Call Susie out on 17th November.
Following the critical success of their recent singles ‘Come and Get Some Me’, ‘Die Inside’, ‘Waiting’, ‘Rubber Hits The Road’ and ‘MINE’, ‘Dark Angel’ channels a heady dose of riot grrrl attitude, punk-rock and soul, with nods to Blondie, Bikini Kill, The Strokes, Iggy & The Stooges, L7 and Queens of the Stone Age.
SUSU says: “Turnt” is a high stakes, even higher tempo, contemporary barnraiser based on sacred adages told by our grandmothers. Forward ever, backwards never… time waits for no man… Better three hours too soon than a minute too late… Turnt’s lyrics are the wisdom of our kinfolk explaining time and its repercussions as an unspoken contract between a woman and her “decisions”. The precipitous moment before the feeling of winning or regret has a chance to settle in, when you know it’s already too late. Everyone has their role to play. It will always be too late to get Turnt.”
Susu, the smouldering New York City outfit features firebrand female lead vocalists and songwriters Liza Colby of the Liza Colby Sound, Kia Warren of Revel In Dimes, guitarist/producer Joey Wunsch, bassist/Halloween aficionado Connor McClelland, and drummer/Queens legend Ronald Anthony Bruno of Dry Clean Only.
Imagine: hot, hawt, haute heat…but not tooo hot that you wouldn’t wanna be all up in that kitchen with it….or snuggled up by that fire…However, too hot for a wash and set to withstand, though bearable for a lace front or protective style. This is the heat radiated by this Rock n ‘ Roll wildfire that was stoked 6 years ago culminating in 2019 with Susu’s debut EP, Panther City.
Call Susie, Susu’s first full length album is a genre bending, shapeshifting conversation between Warren and Colby’s formidable vocal prowess and the band’s undeniable chemistry. This 13 song narrative showcases a rich hold on the Susu approach to sonic story-telling spanning Heart’s layered, intricate harmonies and Tina Turner’s moxie and grit.
Both Colby, Warren and this bombastic band of brothers are provocateurs of the highest order modern day Tummlers marrying variety with Rock n’ Roll to seduce, spiritualize, and slay mother, other, and father fuckers alike.
