Turnover's New Single "Much After Feeling" Bleeds '80s Nostalgia

Turnover’s music has always found comfort in the ethereal—ghostly vocals, reverb-laced guitar leads—but while past releases were steeped in melancholy, the trio’s new singles emit a distinctly danceable energy. “Much After Feeling,” the lead single from Turnover’s newly announced fourth record, Altogether, bridges the gap between the worlds of emo and synth-pop in the grooviest way.

This new avenue on which Turnover have embarked is apparent from the very outset of “Much After Feeling,” which puts an infectious guitar line over some energetic shakers. As the song opens up into a dance-floor beat, the sound of synth takes the lead, veering in the direction of modern dance artists like Toro y Moi and Neon Indian. The b-side, “Plant Sugar,” takes on a surf-rock persona with a rapid, thumping bass line leading the way through sunny bliss. While each track keeps a distinct personality, they both indicate new sonic ambitions for Turnover.

The video to go along with “Much After Feeling” hammers home the group’s new persona with an oversaturated setting of ‘80s psychedelia. Over the track, we’re presented VHS-style scenes of frontman Austin Getz—clad in a white jumpsuit—navigating a surreal landscape of constantly shifting hues. The artistic glitches in the Jennifer Stratford-directed video lend themselves to fantastic surrealist visuals that burn across each shot.

Turnover’s forthcoming record, Altogether, will feature the two new singles, indicating an eclectic collection of tracks to come. Getz mentions the trio’s diverse musical taste, saying, “Collectively we like everything from jazz to folk, disco to rock and roll, and a lot in between, and it’s where we all intersect that things start to feel special.”

The project is an amalgamation of each of the members’ unique songwriting styles. Living on separate coasts, the group’s three members wrote Altogether apart. But as Getz points out, these circumstances allowed for each of their voices to be heard: “Working remotely for the most part, everybody was able to send ideas around on their own schedules, and nobody felt too protective of anything, so the new songs started to reflect each of our personalities more than ever before.”

Altogether comes out Nov. 1 on Run For Cover Records, just ahead of Turnover’s North American tour with Men I Trust. You can watch the video for “Much After Feeling” below, along with the band’s 2017 Paste Studio session, and find their tour dates and more album details further down.
