Indie Rock (Brooklyn, N.Y.)
Indie bands have gone through an evolution as of late. Rather than be content to stay within their genre’s confines, many acts are pushing boundaries, making their music simultaneously more experimental and more accessible at the same time. Suckers’ driving drum rhythms and soft-spoken, but intriguing synths meld to craft an exhilarating take on a formulaic genre. Tack on a low-end that’s guaranteed to get people twisting to the beat and you’d be a sucker to miss out on these Suckers.
You’ll Dig It If You Dig: Listening to Indie music but hate going to Indie bars. (Nick Grever, CityBeat)
~ "In some photos NY quartet Suckers look like regular dudes, and in others they look like face-painted hippies from the planet WOAH. This the MGMGT effect, where every Brooklyn band from Amazing Baby to Chairlift is now expected to arrive swaddled in psychedelic robes and doused in pixie dust. It’s true, Suckers penchant for chants and uplifting group harmonies mean they occupy a similar musical space to their Kings County bredren, but their music is relaxed and charming enough to survive without the fancy dress."
