Despite continuing to work with Will Yip, the producer behind the decks for urgent and aggressive records by the likes of Touché Amoré, Code Orange, Title Fight, Turnstile, and Caracara, the Virginia Beach indie band Turnover have transformed from emo-scene paragons to some smooth and jammy triangulation of Real Estate, Mac DeMarco, and A Great Big Pile Of Leaves. Upon announcing new album Altogether, they further developed that reputation with a pair of new tracks, “Much After Feeling” and “Plant Sugar.” And now they’ve shared a third song from the new album.
“Parties” is an ode to letting your guard down in social situations. Lyrics include, “I’m not that good at making conversation.” As singer-guitarist Austin Getz explains in a press release, “There’s a part in that song where the tone completely changes, and that represents the moment when your walls finally come down and you start to just appreciate where you are. The lyrics go from describing the nervousness you feel in a particular moment to just describing the moment itself because you’re finally out of your head and able to recognize the beauty that’s all around you.”
Listen below, and see if you can pick out that moment Getz highlighted in his quote.
