Turtle Bay TV – No Future – Single Launch

After a year of heavy gigging in support of their debut album, during which they’ve broadened their fanbase and carved out a reputation as a dynamic, formidable live act, Perth post-punk project Turtle Bay TV are excited to announce the release of the debut single from their sophomore album, “No Future” on Friday the 4th of March.

Turtle Bay TV made their start in 2012 as a four piece and has steadily grown to include a brass section and a cast of singers and instrumentalists, now sitting at seven members. The band has gone on to share the stage with various local heroes, including Tired Lion, Felicity Groom, Pat Chow, Abbe May, and Simone & Girlfunkle. The band’s 2020 debut album Sketch Caustic, was the culmination of frontman Thomas Cockram’s writings and recordings over the past few years, marked by a distinctly gothic and theatrical aesthetic. Their sophomore album will involve a more collaborative approach, with notable contributions from bass player Lyric Duckett and trumpeter Will Johnson, leading to tracks with a more vibrant, eclectic and textured sound. 

The forthcoming single, “No Future” is sonically indebted to the layered pop of the Beach Boys and Berlin-era David Bowie and thematically influenced by the dystopian documentaries of Adam Curtis, notably his 2016 film HyperNormalisation. The track was written by Thomas, recorded and produced by Will in his home studio, and mixed and mastered by long-time collaborator Michael Jelinek of Jelly Sound.

‘I wanted to capture this feeling of being compelled to learn and understand real, upsetting things about the world, whilst also feeling that learning those things wasn’t really going to change me or the world around me, making me feel sad and kind of silly. So I wanted to send myself up a bit. I originally focused more on the words than the music, but once we got into the studio, all the stuff we’d been listening to, mostly the Beach Boys and easy listening acts like The Everly Brothers and Glen Campbell, came to the fore and lead us to a very lush, harmonious sound.’  – Thomas 

A launch party will be held on Saturday the 5th of March at The Bird with special guests Lazer Gator and Buckland. Doors 8:00pm, tickets $10. The band will also embark on a WA coastal tour throughout April, the details of which will be announced shortly…
