Two Bright Lakes/Remote Control are very excited to release the first single ‘Infinity Street’ from Sui Zhen‘s forthcoming album ‘Secretly Susan’, out in 2015.
‘Infinity Street’ is but the first taste of a strange and sweet-tasting concoction, it’s balearic beats and airy vocals transporting the listener into Zhen’s unique world. It’s lyrics speak of a post-apocalyptic daydream where our protagonist chases a never-ending sunset. It’s about the persistence of desire and unquenchable thirst. Zhen worked with photographer Phebe Schmidt and DOP Joshua Aylett to help create the pink-hued world of ‘Susan’.
Sui Zhen is the alias of musician and artist Becky Sui Zhen. Her recent EP ‘Female Basic’ showcased her own version of Japanese post-punk through a dreamy balaeric-bossanova filter, moving from the intricate bedroom-pop explored on her 2012 releases Midriffs and Two Seas to create something more minimal and mysterious.
After a decade of dating DJs, Becky discovered her own love for sharing the records that inspire her own music. As DJ SUSAN she plays balearic pop, 80s bossnova, soft-disco and modern-soul – ever searching for voices reminiscent of those she hears in her head. She really likes Dip in the Pool, Antena and Robbie M.
Originally from Sydney, Becky Sui Zhen is now thoroughly embedded in the Melbourne music scene. A participant of the Red Bull Music Academy in 2010 it was there she met collaborator Andras Fox to form the duo Fox + Sui. She performs solo as Sui Zhen and in band format as Sui et Sui (with Ashley Bundang and Alec Marshall). Becky also provides vocals and percussion to Melbourne bands NO ZU and Hot Palms.
