Smoking NYC duo SUSU are fired up to release their new single, Let’s Get High, on 4/20/2020. Here SUSU, known for their eclectic style Blends soul, rock ‘n’ roll, and a kaleidoscope of inspirations and influences.
Belonging to the underrepresented demographic of black women in rock, SUSU is making their outlook known. Lyrically, Liza and Kia explore a variety of political, personal, and emotional arcs throughout their music. This continues on Let’s Get High. With the current state of the world, SUSU is looking to reset the global energy, if only for 4 minutes and 20 seconds.
Let’s Get High sees the dynamic ensemble invoking collective consciousness, playfully riffing over higher frequencies. Described as a “4 minute and 20 second time travel/endorphin shot”, the single aims to celebrate the positive power of connectivity. A smoky atmosphere is layered with dramatic build ups and a climax a la Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit," with guitars omnipresent. Unintentionally timely, Let’s Get High scavenges for the various pleasures that life has to offer, all through the eyes of two women with clear intentions. Functioning as a post-bohemian hybrid of PJ Harvey and Mazzy Star, SUSU looks to traverse Rock and Roll with eccentric lysergic twists.
