Turnover – “New Scream” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
When Turnover released the first single off of their forthcoming LP Peripheral Vision a few weeks ago, we named it one of the best songs of the week based on the sheer weight of its emotionalism. “Cutting My Fingers Off” is a desperate, lonely indulgence in nostalgic, its yearning shot down by the Virginia-based band’s emotive and entangled guitar work. “New Scream” encompasses similar wistful themes — its lyrics express the desire to slow down time, to rewind past memories easily labeled as “good” and tie a bow around them. The performance video that accompanies the single was directed by guitarist Eric Soucy’s brother Rob, and his overcast footage is inter-cut with images of childhood memories and a ticking alarm clock.
