earlier this year SUIS LA LUNE decided to call it quits.
i fell in love with this melodic hardcore band with their second album, Riala.
it was recommended to me by a friend and i listened to it a lot during my UH days being sleepless and miserable in sinclair library. there is something about listening to violent music that just makes me feel better.
in fact, i think i had it in my spotify playlist called "burnt popcorn".
anyway, the EP, Distance / Closure is my favorite release from the band and a perfect way to finish up a 10ish year career.
i love how melodic the instruments sound and how desperate the vocals sound on top of it. it's like a 10 minute epic post-rock song plus getting out all your anguish at the same time. not quite blackgaze like deafheaven. more like an emo-math-gaze?
to top it all off, the pressing is really beautiful too.
matte black and white sleeve with foil lettering, oxblood and olive spatter vinyl.
here are the four songs of this EP:
proof you don't need more songs to tell a complete story.
i'm actually in bed right now, under the covers and listening to this makes me feel happy and sleepy.
i suppose that's my cue to end this post-
thanks for all the tunes, suis la lune, i'll miss you!
INSTANT TIME MACHINE!
