Tokyo’s The Suzan dropped their first new song in more than four years when they released “Jungle Beat” on June 30th via the Swedish Artist Collective INGRID.


 They revealed the new tune with the help of BlackBook Mag the day prior, who noted the “modern-primitive rhythms, exuberant horn blasts and primordial chanting actually recall post-punk provocateurs like The Slits and Rip Rig + Panic.”  Bjorn Yttling (Peter Bjorn and John, Chrissie Hynde, Primal Scream, Lykke Li) produced the latest music from the band, who he first discovered back in 2008 and has been working with ever since.

Outside of a few singles, the Doki Doki Sounds EP is The Suzan’s first release in the US since 2010’s Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat LP.  Out today via INGRID, the band is coming to NYC for two very special shows in August to celebrate the new EP – the 5th at Sunnyvale in Brooklyn and the 10th at Pianos in Manhattan.
