West London four-piece The Turning make storming garage-rock n roll and sounds like The Byrds meets the Ramones. Developing their very own style and mixing a number of influences both nostalgic and contemporary, below is the exclusive premiere of their brand new single 'Groundhog Day', a stellar tune which sees punk urgency with a refreshing modern flair. The track is also available as a free download, below.
Taking influence from much of the British beat music of the 60's, including Motown and Freakbeat bands and Mod Revival of the late 70's, they also embrace the 90’s Brit Rock scene, and list influences as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Who, The Small Faces, The Doors, The Velvet Underground, T-Rex, David Bowie, Slade, Dr Feelgood, Elvis Costello, The Sex Pistols, The Jam, The Smiths, The Stone Roses, Oasis, Kasabian, The Arctic Monkeys, The Moons and Miles Kane.
Having recently wrapped up an extensive 12-date UK tour, the last 18 months has consisted of multiple sell out headline shows, supporting artists such as The Strypes.
