SUZUKI/METHOD – Native EP Ft the single Sherbet
Out Now onA1(M) Records

Super Cat Recently signed to A1(M) Records, Suzuki/Method are Brothers and founders Adam and Glen Leishman, Michael Mathews, David Boyd and Ben Hounslow who came together during the Salford riots to create their debut EP ‘NATIVE’.

Produced by David Tolan (Delphic, Primal Scream) and Jim Spencer (The Doves,The Vaccines, New Order) the EP is full of melody and replete with swaggering anthemic ‘we dare-you-not-to-dance’ chorus’.

Swelling bass lines and cast iron drum beats draped in lush synth textures and jangly guitars provide a pitch perfect soundtrack to Vocalist Adam’s forlorn tale of youth in crisis. It’s this ingredients that makes these industrial dance floor fillers so vitally urgent. A place where 30 years of dance music culture collides with a wall of screaming guitars and lyrics question and lay blame in equal measure. Crucially however it is the principled and intelligent approach to pop music that make this Salford band so appealing to such a large demographic.

Drawing from a diverse palate of influences ranging from Daft Punk to The Smiths (by way of guitar lines that wouldn’t be out of place on a Parliament record) there is something almost Darwinian in their sound selections and arrangements, where in only the strongest hooks make the final cut.

The video for lead single Sherbet was directed by Bafta film maker Pete Travis, ( Omagh, Vantage Point, Judge Dredd) who agreed to do so after seeing the band perform at London’s Barfly. Set on the Manchester rooftops, it is a fast paced and beautifully shot affair.
The band have received BBC introducing, Amazing radio and XFM airplay and the accompanying video to last single Country Cousins notched up 30,000 video plays in three days on MUZTV and NME TV.
Suzuki Method are an exciting band destined to make their mark in 2013.
