Follow SUO's nocturnal hunt in video "Unsatisfied Blood," plays The Broadway 12.14

It’s possible you’re already acquainted with Brooklyn-based musician Saara Untracht-Oakner by way of indie four-piece tour de force BOYTOY, but under the name SUO she steps out as a solo act to lay down grooving, tactile indie rock on new track “Unsatisfied Blood.” Muted guitars and atmospheric wah-wahs underlay Untracht-Oakner’s post-punk vocal delivery, drawing inspiration from a wide range of artists including David Byrne, Prince, and Patti Smith; the song (and its lyrics detailing insatiable bloodlust) serve as a nice score for the music video in which SUO engages in nocturnal bloodsports, Man Bites Dog style. Check it out below, and catch her at The Broadway on December 14th.

New Sipper single “Ghost” promises more indie soft jams on forthcoming EP

Sipper’s debut Adam Driver EP came out earlier this year and properly introduced us to Joe Beerman’s hushed, almost secretive songwriting and spare indie rock, but that hasn’t stopped him from getting in new single before we wrap 2019. Opting for a more acoustic, room filling sound, recently unveiled track “Ghost” carries much of the same easy listenability of the project’s previous release; Beerman is still cranking out catchy hooks coupled with minimalistic instrumentation while exploring different, increasingly psyche-tinged instrumentation. Better yet, as the first single off the band’s next, as-of-yet unnamed EP (out next year), it builds appropriate hype for those of us clamoring for more Sipper music (present company very much included); listen to it below. —Connor Beckett McInerney
