Sounds | Suzie Stapleton, Blood On The Windscreen


Eindelijk komt haar debuut album eraan, na een reeks van singles waaronder deze die op We Are The Plague (release ergens juni 2020) zal komen te staan. Donker en diep als Lanegan en Cave, de female power en intensiteit van een Wolfe en Rundle. Wanneer Suzie Stapleton eindelijk de plas over steekt, staan wij op de eerste rij!

ter info Suzie Stapleton is a Sydney-born alternative rock artist who honed her craft in Melbourne

before relocating to the UK in 2015. She has built a loyal fanbase, captivating audiences

with electric live performances using her midnight vocal to weave shards of poetry into

guitar-driven noir soundscapes laced with intricate melodies.

Stapleton has released a string of singles over the past two years gaining airplay on BBC

Radio 6 Music, Absolute Radio, Amazing Radio, and becoming a Fresh Fave on Tom

Robinson’s Fresh On The Net. Stapleton has opened for artists such as Mark Lanegan,

Mick Harvey, and Boss Hog and appeared at festivals including Liverpool Sound City,

Camden Rocks Festival, Colours of Ostrava and Binic Folk Blues Festival.

Stapleton’s highly anticipated debut album ‘We Are The Plague’ is scheduled for release

in June 2020 via Cargo Records. Stapleton wrote the album in a vacant house in

Brighton furnished with only a futon bed from freecycle and a old fridge. The desolate

surroundings fed into the apocalyptic album themes. It is a rallying cry, a howl into the

abyss, the defiant call of a generation sold down the river and acutely aware of it’s own

demise.

‘We Are The Plague’ was recorded at Ox4 Sounds and mixed by award winning engineer

Dan Cox (Thurston Moore, Laura Marling), the album includes Gavin Jay (Jim Jones

Revue/The Righteous Mind) on bass and Jim Macaulay (The Stranglers) on drums.

They debuted at London's Servant Jazz Quarters with Louder Than War touting it as “An

unmissable opportunity to see one of the most exciting emerging talents on the London

scene before she hits the big time”.

2017 saw Stapleton appear as a guest vocalist on no-wave icon Lydia Lunch & Cypress

Grove’s unlikely covers album “Under The Covers” (Rustblade Records). This is a

continuation of Stapleton’s collaborations with Cypress Grove on The Jeffrey Lee

Pierce Sessions Project. She first cameoed on the project’s third album ‘Axels &

Sockets’ (feat. Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Debbie Harry, Thurston Moore + others) which

has lead to her working closely with Grove on the fourth album currently in production.
