Turboweekend have been kicking around since 2006 but were only recently tipped off to me by TBE reader Arletta. She introduced the band thusly:
Turboweekend is a three piece band from Copenhagen. They released 2 LP’s: Night Shift and Ghost Of A Chance. The second album is brilliant, has it’s own atmosphere and it got to Poland along with the single “Trouble Is.” 11 songs creates amazing collection of unique sounds. Amazing vocals, hypnotic bass sounds and perfect drums. Plus extraordinary lyrics and an atmosphere of the music makes me wanna listen to it 24/7.
I was sold. Luckily Arletta also mentioned their new EP, Bound, which is available for free on their website. I nabbed the EP immediately and have beenÂ thoroughlyÂ enjoying it ever since. Arletta hit Turboweekend’s sound on the head with her description. It was hard to my pick favorites of the 5 tracks for this post but “Into The Pavement” makes the cut for it’s spacey synths, gruff vocals, and perfect bounciness.
Bound closes with “Spider of Light,” the song creeping between piano, drums, and quickly strumming guitar as wispy synths swirl around it all. It’s a perfect example of Turboweekend’s current craftsmanship and progression since the rougher-around-the-edges indie rock of their hit “Trouble Is.” Catch that video below and grab Bounce for free.Â
