Turnip King releases "Laika" LP + play Shea Stadium on 08.10

Turnip King releases "Laika" LP + play Shea Stadium on 08.10

Turnip King’s swirling blend of psych rock and dream pop was born in Long Island's' coastal town of Sea Cliff, where the band hails from. The group is about to release their debut full length (or rather "mini-album, since it's comprised of only seven songs) Laika on August 19th via Fire Talk Records. The two singles unveiled so far showcase slow burning songs reminiscent of acts such as Slowdive and The Jesus and Mary Chain. The first single off the album “Carsong” encapsulates their experiences of growing up in the suburbs, while making references to driving around aimlessly listening to music with a friend. Its sparse intro highlights Lucia Arias' youthful vocals before breaking down into a shoegazy wall-of-sound. Second single “Metonymy” is a slower number characterized by wailing psychedelic guitars, breezy drumming, and echoing melodies. Turnip King just wrapped up an east coast tour with a show at Trans Pecos and will be performing again at Shea Stadiumon August 10th. - John Honan
