Boston's THE SUSAN CONSTANT are a band evolving before our eyes. Striving to advance, pushing their sound and willing to make a mark on the New England music landscape one scalding show at a time.. (And here's something to discuss: how an indie pop band can sometimes throw cymbal-smashing, epic nights of rock-ness.?!! There's always a "risk" of that with The Susan Constant.) With the new record, SHAPES, out today - the band continue to ride the line between post-punk pop and modern pop music. It's an area and a thing they do better than anybody right now in this city.
The new EP Shapes is a true DIY effort, self-produced over the course of 2012 resulting in six songs that show a step forward for the band, released on the band's own microlabel Tour de Stade Records. Paul Sennott, singer and songwriter, is a standout.
