Album Review Turnover - Myself In The Way

A new world of expansive sound.

Turnover - Myself In The Way

Chameleon-like Virginians Turnover have found themselves shapeshifting once more. Their most ambitious work to date, ‘Myself In The Way’ sees them enter a new world of expansive sound. Gone are the scuzzy guitars of ‘Peripheral Vision’, or the dreamy sheen on 2019’s ‘Altogether’. Instead, they’re spinning under the glittering cast of a disco ball: psychedelic synths, ‘70s-inspired bass, sexy saxophone lines. It’s a more spatial experience; all-encompassing, each track swirls around with a centrifugal whirl. ‘Ain’t Love Heavy’ calls upon Temple of Angels’ Bre Morell, who provides vocals that seemingly drip smoothly onto the beat; it’s a honeyed track, start to finish. ‘People That We Know’ is no nonsense groove - breezy, sultry and floating, it practically shimmers. Elsewhere, ‘Pleasures Galore’ revels in falsettos and a disco-enthused bassline which keeps the mood unflinchingly light. It’s a total departure for Turnover, but this new look suits them completely. ‘Myself in the Way’ might leave you wondering what form they will take next, but for now it’s an encouragement to relish the delicious sound they’ve created here.
