USS’ ‘Advanced Basics’, produced by Tawgs Salter (Lights, Walk Off The Earth), has been hugely successful in Canada, premiering at #2 on the iTunes Top 200 and #1 on the Alternative and Independent charts on Soundscan, as well as spawning seven Top 10 radio hits and two certified Gold singles. The album has also earned the band a JUNO nomination for “Breakthrough Group of the Year,” and an Indie Award for “Single of the Year” with “Yin Yang,” beating out acts such as MAGIC!, Chromeo and Death From Above 1979.
With seven Top 10 alternative radio hits, and counting, the wildly popular USS is a duo you’ll be hearing much more about in the in the near future. Their sound is as hard to describe as their name is to say. Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker, better known as USS, are like a campfire after-party with a jungle-rave vibe, progressively two-stepping their way to a dance folk cuddle. Pure intention is the scope they aim through, eliciting dance-floor eruptions is what they’re known for. The band has performed alongside Mother Mother, Walk Off The Earth, The Arkells, Rise Against, Awolnation, MS MR, Lights, and Silversun Pickups, with numerous national and international tours under their belt.
Award-winning Canadian musical scientists USS have announced plans to release their chart-topping album ‘Advanced Basics’ in the U.S. on October 30th.
