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’.
On Tuesday the 3rd of April, King Krule was invited to play a few songs, live on BBC Radio 1. Those included ‘Biscuit Town’ and ‘Logos’ from his latest album The Ooz, and an outstanding take on Connan Mockasin’s ‘Forever Dolphin Love’.

Ville à Dômat: Listening The Unknown
King Krule is Archy Marshall, who beat-sings poetry that tumbles up and down like a diary written in M.C. Escher-space, through a voice like a languorous boxing glove.
“Czech One,” Marshall’s first new song since 2013, is an appropriately named, tentative step back up to the mic and early morning toe-dip in the lake of his avant-lounge (or fauxotica-jazz, or absinthe-core).
