“Quirky spunk and funky pop energy” – The New Yorker
Often described as a Midwest Roxy Music, but with more humor and rock scruff, The ‘Burbs have been making their unique punk-pop-art-dance records and performing off and on for 40 years. With dance-club hits like “Waiting” and ”Music for Boys” and radio hits like ”Life Is Like”, “Rattle My Bones”, and the recent Marriage Equality Anthem, “Love Is The Law”, The Suburbs could be forgiven for resting on their laurels. But the music and accolades keep on coming. Their last single “Turn The Radio On” was voted “Song Of The Year” by a poll of local music critics in the Minneapolis Star Tribune in 2013, and their brand new album “Hey Muse!” is already gathering what can only be described as a worthy buzz.
Founded in 1977, The Suburbs are recognized worldwide as among the original heroes of the “Minneapolis Sound”; keeping good company with bands like The Suicide Commandos, Prince, The Replacements and Husker Du. Led now by original keyboardist and singer Chan Poling, original drummer Hugo Klaers, and longtime saxophonists Max Ray (also of The Wallets), they are augmented by a supergroup of newcomers.
