LONDON-BASED rockers, Turbogeist, release their brand new 5-track EP, ‘Ancient Secrets’, today (March 11th 2013) via Spinefarm Records.
In celebration, ‘Ancient Secrets’ will be available to stream via SoundCloud for a limited time from here: https://soundcloud.com/spinefarmrecords/sets/turbogeist-ancient-secrets
Says vocalist / guitarist Jimmy…
“‘Ancient Secrets’ pertains to our obsession with all things fantastical and cryptic. It’s an abstract title, but these are abstract times. We didn’t wanna make an oi oi punk angst record, although that’s how we started out. We wanted to make something more tongue-in-cheek, more weird. We were always turned on by a splatter-gun of influences. We didn’t want to make a punk or hardcore or glam or thrash record; we didn’t wanna make anything that felt sonically linear. If the EP were a drug it would probably be acid, as it could go in a few directions. It could be scary, but it could also make you laugh or cry, or make you realise that nothing is real and we are all just a collection of atoms moving very fast to no discernible end.”
Guitarist / vocalist Luis adds…
“Being a youth in the ’90s, with Brit Pop, Grunge, Hip Hop and great rock bands emerging on the radio and music television, we were spoilt for choice. Nowadays, everything seems too polished. However, if you look beyond the void of Mercury Awards and Coldplay B-sides, there are great underground scenes/bands emerging…”
The debut Turbogeist album is already in the can, and will follow later in 2013, once again through Spinefarm.
