New: Suckers - "Chinese Braille"


Brooklyn’s Suckers have been making great, worldly guitar pop for quite some time, and now they’re gearing up to release a second LP called Candy Salad by teasing a few singles of radically different vibe. If you were expecting another orchestral pop jam in the vein of “Turn on the Sunshine,” put your suspicions before when you click play on single number two, “Chinese Braille,” which is, yep, a moody slow-burner. No one’s abandoning their love for awesome, varying guitar tones (that solo!) nor that affinity for hyper-catchy riffs in unexpected places (that whistling!) nor those heartstring-tugging choir vocals, they’re just updating their tried-and-true formula into anthemic territory, and it works like a charm. Candy Salad drops April 24.
