Turnover have never allowed their sound to become stale or predictable – instead, from their 2013 debut Magnolia they transformed from “your garden-variety pop-punk outfit. Then, they morphed into dreamy emo, and then again into Pet Sounds-filtered surf rock” (Pitchfork) via Peripheral Vision, and Good Nature.
Then with last year’s Altogether they strayed even further from their pop-punk Magnolia roots – but their signature sound stamp was applied, and the record was created.
Brimming with disco-esque anthems (for example in Much After Feeling), they have drawn comparisons to Talk Talk and made their sound more rounded. The ten tracks that feature “elements of funk, jazz and lounge” offer accessibility to even the most casual of Turnover listeners.
It is their sophomore LP, Peripheral Vision, though, that fans arguably associate most with the Virginia rockers – massively catchy tracks such as Dizzy On the Comedown, Cutting My Fingers Off and New Scream are fan favourites and often still played five years since release.
