One of my favorite bands, Turnover released “Pure Devotion, its newest single, off of the band’s record “Good Nature,” at the end of last year. The song is dreamy soft-soul indie pop with a romantic streak. Pivoting between glassy and reverb-heavy chords high on the guitar neck, the song is about that timeless subject of popular song, eternal love.
If there’s an area of overlap between the billowy-linen California radio pop of LANY and the slightly more overtly arty sensibilities of bands like Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Turnover occupies that zone. Some of the sleek sounds and steady rhythms are absorbed from synth pop and then transferred to a guitar context.
