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’.
The kings of shoegaze and post-punk in the ’80s, and possibly one of the best Scottish bands ever, The Jesus and Mary Chain kicked off their career in 1984 and broke up at the end of the ’90s, though they enjoyed a brief moment of glory in 2003 when their song ‘Just Like Honey’ was included in the soundtrack for ‘Lost in Translation’. Following a few solo disappointments, the Reid brothers got the band back together with Phil King, Brian Young and Mark Crozer to do the festival circuit, including Coachella, Primavera Sound and BBK Live. Their new album, ‘Damage and Joy’ will be played tonight in Barcelona at Razzmatazz.
