It’s going to be a warm, dreamy Friday with Turnover’s return to the Charleston Music Farm! Touring their latest album, Good Nature, the Virginia-born band continues to experiment and perfect their sound. Joining the ranks of punk bands that have mellowed over time, such as Title Fight and Ceremony (and soon to be Trophy Eyes), Turnover’s newest sound is much less like the punch-in-the-gut 2011 Turnover EP and more like a long drive in SoCal during the golden hour.
The pop-punk turned dream-pop band is comprised of Austin Getz, Casey Getz and Danny Dempsey. Releasing their first full-length, Magnolia, in 2013, Turnover has gone nowhere but up since their start in 2009. Listening to their earliest release and their latest, the contrast of genre is stark. Though, going through their discography, Turnover has been able to progress and change seamlessly. Magnolia was the start in joining their punk style with softer instrumentals, while still in the realm of “emo.” Peripheral Vision (2015) was almost there, as they went headfirst into the world of reverb, though the same emotionally aware lyrics were present from their earlier years. All three albums flow through each other and reference every aspect of Turnover, past and present. As we listen, Good Nature feels like the matured achievement we were waiting for.
In preparation for the Friday show, I’ve been reading show reviews from different radio stations. According to these reviews, Turnover does exceptionally well in creating an atmosphere, which is almost obvious after listening to their newest dream-pop album. You can imagine soft pink and green lighting, with the crowd swaying and singing along. With how talented these musicians are, one can expect a great live show. Though, I’ll still cross my fingers that they’ll play “Sasha” from Turnover.
