Previously Announced Tours:
There’s a huge problem with a lot of bands in the current scene: it’s incredibly hard to establish your own sound and stand out from your peers. Just ask Virginia Beach punks Turnover, who has been catching the attention of pop-punk and hardcore fans all over since the release of their self-titled EP back in 2011. They grew an even larger fan base when they signed to Run For Cover Records and released a split with Citizen early last year. The one thing Turnover never really did was sound different from their counterparts — but with their new album Magnolia, they might just take over the entire scene.
The album opens up with “Shiver,” showing off the band’s new direction, both vocally and instrumentally. The song channels Turnover’s inner The Early November while keeping their roots as a minor influence.
Up next is the album’s first single “Most of The Time,” which is now easily the best song in the band’s catalog. In the crushing outro, it’s hard not to sing along with the lines, “Most of the time I’m hopelessly lost, Most of the time I’m between the cracks, Most of the time you’ll find me drifting, Most of the time I’m never coming back.” The song would have also worked perfectly as the album closer, but fits well here too.
“Wither” and “Bloom” resemble the band’s earlier material while still keeping the new crisp revision of 90’s emo that the band went for with the new release. The latter has a similar outro to “Most of The Time” and was a good choice for getting released as a first teaser song, showing only mild (but at least still noticeable) progression.
