New York rock and roll outfit SUSU have returned with the final track ‘Turnt’, taken off their album ‘Call Susie’ which is out now.
Following the critical success of their recent singles ‘Dark Angel’, ‘Come and Get Some Me’, ‘Die Inside’, ‘Waiting’, ‘Rubber Hits The Road’ and ‘MINE’, ‘Turnt’ channels a heady dose of raucous gospel tinged rock and roll with nods to Tina Turner, The Black Keys, X-Ray Spex and Big Joanie.
About the track the band comment:
“‘Turnt’ is a high stakes, even higher tempo, contemporary barnraiser based on sacred adages told by our grandmothers. Forward ever, backwards never… time waits for no man… Better three hours too soon than a minute too late… Turnt’s lyrics are the wisdom of our kinfolk explaining time and its repercussions as an unspoken contract between a woman and her ‘decisions’. The precipitous moment before the feeling of winning or regret has a chance to settle in, when you know it’s already too late. Everyone has their role to play. It will always be too late to get Turnt.”
A firecracker of a riff from the off this is a balls to the wall rock track topped by those smoking vocals of Liza Colby and Kia Warren. It’s deep rock n roll with a punk spirit buried in the mix all set fire by the sizzling guitar and snap, crack and rattle of the drums. These guys have ended the year with a bang.
