2015 was a busy year for Virginia Beach’s Turnover. After the May release of their acclaimed sophomore LP Peripheral Vision, the band toured relentlessly with bands like Lydia, The Story So Far and The World Is A Beautiful Place and I am No Longer Afraid To Die, as record stores across the country struggled to keep the record in stock. Humblest Pleasures, co-released by Run For Cover Records and EP producer Will Yip’s Memory Music, expands upon the sound that Turnover so masterfully executed on Peripheral Vision while at the same time diving into new territory. The title track’s upbeat yet delicate rhythm allows vocalist/guitarist Austin Getz’s vocals to shine, including a falsetto melody that promises to linger in your head long after the song ends. The b-side track “Change Irreversible” slows down to recall the finest moments of The Cure’s chorus-heavy guitar leads, as the somber refrain, “there’s nothing that will help what trouble I’ve been thinking of”.
