The Susan Constant

New Music this Week!
Someone You Should Know


The Susan Constant release their new EP, SHAPES, today.
Release party this Sat 1/19 at the legendary Middle East. 


POPULAR MUSIC - 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.

 What does this mean for the future? In the immediate, go pick up their album (name your own price) and if you're reading this local, you can catch the band's set this Saturday night at the Middle East in Cambridge. It's a great way to hear SHAPES performed live and see what I mean about the live transformation that takes place. In the long term, this is a band to keep your eyes on. You know we will!

DETAILS - Saturday 1/19 lineup at The Middle East:
Butterknife (9PM), Slowdim (10PM), The Susan Constant (11PM), Animal Talk (12AM).
