SÜKKO return with their new single Golden Suits

SÜKKO

The world seems to be plagued with violence, building tensions with Ukraine’s border and Russia looming whilst the crisis in Yemen continues. It is understandable why many of us want to remain ignorant to these realities, instead of opening up our heads to them for then, we realise how helpless we are in the face of injustice.

Mainstream media routinley fails to focus on the world around us, we may be allowed some minute understanding but we are left to rely on our own curiosity to see the wilder world. SÜKKO’s new single Golden Suits explores these themes, holding meglomaniac leaders accountable by questioning why they’re allowing the demise of our enviroment and neglecting the underprivilleged. This shift to privillege is spoltlighted in the latter stages of the song. We may all live in the same society but it’s difficult for the rising sea levels to reach you when you’re born on a buttressed pedestal of privellege.

Golden Suits by SÜKKO

The frustration and anger felt in the face of helplessness is imbued throughout the song in the form of cynical, observational lyricism from vocalsit Felix Jordan and gritty guitar riffs from James Jordan and Eliot Clarke on guitar. Some parts of the track are alsmot idel in their tone, hinting at the laziness of our leaders to address concerning issues, this reggae mix of trumpet and synth keyboard from Matt Thompson is contradicted by the demands of Ben Alexander on the drums.If you want more from life this is the perfect track to listen to whilst searching for it.

SÜKKO are using their growing platform to raise awareness to the control of insitutions have over us and how little of the world is discussed, it encoruages us to question why these structure are in place and whther reform needs to be taken. Their EP of the same name, Golden Suits, showcases their stance against dominant politics.

Remember Sukko? Well look at them now

Bringing you Indie Bangers straight from their kitchen. (Read my inital interview with them here to understand that)

Sukko

A catch up with this band was needed after the announcement their new single “In My Head ” is out now so check it out

In My Head Sukko

From their album A Violent deep feel’ the melodic ,synth instrumental to this song evokes a soft feeling, a ray of sunlight through an open window or a stroll in the local park, feeling light, not bothering with a jacket and being out soley for the breeze is a complete contrast to the chorus which seems to be about the torment of being trapped inside your own head.

It’s tone quickly becomes quite haunting the familiar voice of Felix Jordan becomes that belonging to consequence, guilt. It demonstrates how capricious life is, how instantaneous change comes and how quickly you can go from being stable on the ground to lying on the floor.

The atmospheric instrumental is brought to us by Matt Thompson on the trumpet and keyboard, Ben Alexander on the foreboding drums, James Jordan and Eliot Clarke on guitar

The band shared the inspiration for their song with me “The song is an exploration of many of the negatives felt by everyone from time to time, anxiety,stress and loneliness. The songs emotional essence also highlights the need for escapism,the need to find inner peace , to seperate one’s self from the world whilst understanding we must return to re andality face our issues, ask for help if need be”

Since our initial interview back in August the band have evolved in terms of improving their song writing and their live performances. Their music ”is constantly adapting, transcending from one style to another to fit certain mood or prescient topics. These attitudes are evident in both ‘Take Your Time’ and ‘In My Head’, the latter of which is more experimental in it’s approach to production with more synths and textures, it is quite an immersive experience”

This will be their sixth single as band since forming in 2018.
