A quick scroll through suri, pop’s Soundcloud page unveils the steady progression of an elusive artist’s sound over the past year. As the jagged edges and barebones of tracks get refined into some full-blown bangers, Suri’s disposition toward sparse, dark production contrasted with upbeat, addictive melodies remains consistent throughout. Aside from the music itself, not much information is present to put Suri, who’s based on the East coast, into context. With that said, the music seems sufficient enough to prove that Suri is an immensely promising songwriter, with an especially strong knack for crafting catchy pop melodies delivered in a way that seems to draw inspiration from pop-punk, trap and electronic music all at the same time.
I reached out to Suri via email to find out more about the mysterious musician whom I first came across on Soundcloud a few months ago. Check out some of the highlights and get to know Suri in the following interview excerpt, and check out a selection of Suri’s singles so far below:
