The Muses of La Musa: Suzi Wu

Suzi Wu describes her music as “electronic grunge”, yet she draws from inspirations as far reaching genres as psych-rock, all the way to hip-hop. Listening to her EP, Teenage Witch takes these inspirations and pools them together to form a really unique sound that simply can’t be caged in definitions. Her delivery has the appealing drawl of King Krule, her lyricism the punk abruptness of Patti Smith; both spoken word and singing are delivered in an attractive mellow drone, with a trance-like quality that impressively (somehow) simultaneously blends with, and sits on top of, her grungey and driving melodies à la The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Suzi Wu has released the title-track from her new, slightly delayed EP, ‘Error 404’. The release – originally due in January, but now arriving on 22nd March – has already been previewed by the opener, ‘Grim Reaper’.
