Album Review

Suckers branch out from the new-wavy-ness of their debut Suckers EP with their first full-length. With less prominent keytar and a firmer grip on Afro-pop, 2010's Wild Smile could easily be lumped in with releases by fellow Brooklyn indie rockers Chairlift, Yeasayer, and Vampire Weekend. The retro homage is cast aside, but a degree of camp remains due to Quinn Walker's choice to sing in a prepubescent falsetto in many of the songs — perhaps in hopes of shaking David Byrne comparisons. As ridiculously high as his voice may be, and even though it may take several spins to become acclimated to it, the melodies are sharp and enticing. The balladic “Before Your Birthday Ends,” "A Mind I Knew," “Loose Change,” and “Martha” are all primed live anthems, sung in rousing four-part harmony rounds over staccato guitar runs, key swells, popping bass, and percussive beats. Meanwhile, a fan favorite, the Anand Wilder assisted "It Gets Your Body Movin'," makes a return appearance from the EP to fit in with the rest of the album, a weird puzzle of spry hooks and offbeat yet highly affable instrumentation.

Customer Reviews

Won't be suckered

A must buy/ download /steal /recreate in shower what have you. You have to listen to this album.

The term multiinstrumentalists is a cliche that Suckers exceed here. The album surges and swoons, conjuring a shout out loud joy that recalls Oingo Boingo and David Byrne at once.



Suckers are a very a talented bunch of musicians who each play several different instruments when jamming together...Definitely buy this album if you are a fan of Talking Heads, Animal Collective or the movie Labyrinth! The album is packed full of excellent songs and Quinns voice is very versatile..Superb debut album!

Got to see them live in Denver...

soooo good live - crazy good. They should have been the headlining show instead of Local Natives. If the Suckers come to your town, see them, you won't regret it.


Formed: Brooklyn, NY

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Suckers formed in Brooklyn, NY, where members Quinn Walker, Austin Fisher, Pan, and Brian Aiken began mixing tribal indie rock with flourishes of chamber pop and Bowie-inspired eclecticism. Walker enjoyed some success as a solo artist in 2008 (having signed to CocoRosie's label and issued a double album to underground acclaim), but the band brought a different palette to the drawing board, with multi-instrumentalists Pan and Fisher serving to widen Walker's sound. Drummer Brian Aiken joined the lineup...
