Virginia Beach's Turnover has never been a band afraid of telling the truth. The emotional honesty poured out over a number of anthemic releases has been a proven formula of success for the band, but on their sophomore LP Peripheral Vision, the band treads into deeper water. Working again with Magnolia producer Will Yip (Title Fight, Circa Survive), Turnover's latest record shows a band maturing to create their best effort: an ethereal, reverb-drenched soundscape blending elements of hazy dream pop and the delicate emo rock of yesteryear. Songs like "Hello Euphoria" and "Like Slow Disappearing" highlight the new calmer, more subdued approach to songwriting, matched by Austin Getz's somber, confessional lyrics that echo throughout songs as if his words were haunting every measure. Peripheral Vision solidifies the idea that Turnover is a band with its finger on the pulse of its generation: growing and learning with every release, but never failing to provide a relatable, cathartic experience for anyone listening.
There's a specific feeling you get when you listen to Turnover's most recent record, Peripheral Vision - it's full of a deep, reverb-y vibe that is comfortable and discerning at the same time, in all the best ways. Between hearing the record and seeing the way the band played those songs live made us incredibly excited to add Turnover to the Feed The Beat roster this year! A group of road-warrior musicians who have a LOT of touring on their plate before the year ends, they took a few minutes to talk with us:
Tell the Feed The Beat community about Turnover in one sentence: Go with the flow, avoid police.
The band has been pretty busy on the road this year - you're out on tour right now, in fact! What's most exciting about playing for a new audience each night? On tour, we get the opportunity to interact with new people and places every night which makes for something unexpected all the time.
What is your biggest "must have" while out on tour? Some time by yourself.
You released your sophomore record Peripheral Vision earlier this year - how does it feel to have those songs out in the world now? Are there fan favorites that you were surprised about, or songs that you enjoy playing over others? We're all very proud of Peripheral Vision and being able to play the songs every night is a pleasure. The favorites among us and among listeners differ sometimes but we really love every song on the record and we're thrilled to play any of them that people want to hear.
Releasing an album is a lot of work, and it seems like Turnover aren't slowing down anytime soon - what else is coming up for the band this year? Are there any videos or fall events we should look forward to? We have almost 100 shows on the books between now and the new year, some more videos, and possibly some new songs. We're excited to have everyone grow with us as things progress.
