Virginia Beach's Turnover put out their debut LP, Magnolia, last year via Run for Cover and they're set to follow it with the 3-song Blue Dream 7" on August 26 via Broken Rim in the US and Dog Knights in Europe (click the links to pre-order).
Its first single, "Disintegration," is a slow-burner, opening with clean-guitar arpeggios not unlike Brand New's "Jesus Christ" or Manchester Orchestra's "I Can Feel A Hot One." And like those bands, this is wise-beyond-its-years kinda stuff, with singer Austin Getz reflecting on the unchangeable past and the unknowable future. "I just want to try to be a better man before I fall apart," he sings in the song's second half, a crushing post-hardcore climax after the softer intro. It's not the kind of stuff that every band in this style is going to tackle this early in their career, but the fact that Turnover are going for it and succeeding is making them look pretty promising right now. The song premieres in this post and can be streamed below.
The band will also be touring in late summer and early fall with Light Years and Malfunction. That tour hits NYC on September 25 at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet but will be soon via Ticketweb.
