SSION is back back back with an absolute tune! It’s the first song from his third studio album and SSION’s first in five years, it’s called O and will come out on DERO Arcade in Spring 2018.
Cody Critcheloe has been releasing music as SSION (pronounced SHUN) for a decade and he’s really out done himself this time around. Critcheloe has gone full Michel Gondry for the self-directed ‘Comeback’ video – Critcheloe has previously made vids for Robyn, Perfume Genius, Grizzly Bear, Kylie Minogue, Santigold dontcha know. The entire upcoming album, including ‘Comeback’, was written and produced by SSION, Nick Weiss and former Test Icicle – Sam Mehran.
Here’s what Critcheloe had to say about it all:
‘Comeback’ was the first song written for the album and it became a sonic synopsis for the album itself -infectious hooky pop song on the verge of breakdown that eventually gets ripped apart at the end… mixing subtle and not so-subtle nods to 70s rock n roll tropes and digital hardcore-style noise, it often feels like a OG mix-tape collage with a solid pop core…”
