Turnpike Glow – New Single – 1986

15 Mar

“This band have captured a unique indie-electronic sound that will overload your immune system.”

To see a band with fresh ideas in the music they create brings joy to many individuals. The following band have done just that, with music so randomly brilliant, you’d be a fool for not giving them a listen.

I’m talking about Turnpike Glow – but of course, you already knew that.

Built amongst the shadows of Rome (that’s in Italy by the way) with a Londonish tang, this band have captured a unique indie-electronic sound that will overload your immune system.

They are finally releasing records now, with new single ‘1986’ being their first effort. Last year there was a free download of the song ‘The Turn, The Pike and The Glow’, but we’re calling ‘1986’ their first official release.

And what a release it is: packed with naturally accented vocals from lead singer Sandro Schiena, pulsing stop-start guitar tweaks, and a catchy whistling keys riff.

“It’s about the end of a relationship under a heavy and unusual snowfall in Rome,” say the group.

“We just hope as many people as possible get to hear the track and see the video.”

The track is a breath of fresh air. It’s not deep and meaningful; it’s just fun to listen to. This is the way I’d like to see them carry on with their next releases, keeping up the sense of ‘having a laugh’ with their music.

They’re a band that just seems to fit all ages. There’s a youthful catchiness about their music and lyrics but it’s the type of thing that will make adults feel young again – no disrespect intended of course.

With the help of their brilliant PR label A Badge of Friendship, this band may just go far. They’ve got all the odd qualities of being well-liked in this musical land we live.

Turnpike Glow’s debut single “1986”, was released on March 5th by Fünke Pop Records. To download the record for free click here.
