The first listen of The Suzies first (self-titled) album gives the impression of having grabbed a dusty old record from your parents’ collection or from the bin at a record store and set on the turntable for a listen. There’s a pleasant nostalgic tone to their music that is reminiscent of the days when it was uncommon for music to be auto-tuned corporate written shallow pop music. Their sound is their own. There is little like this on the radio today, and that is very refreshing.
For a first album, The Suzies has a strong start. Though the songs are each unique in their own ways, there’s enough similarity to them to make the album flow well. Most of the songs are lively, and even when they aren’t, it is’t jarring. The instrumentals are great, and the vocals blend together superbly. Hearing a debut album like this is exciting because it leaves me eagerly waiting to hear how great future albums will be.
