“Turning” is the first track from Collarbones‘ long-awaited third album ‘Return,’ set for release in November 2014
It’s been an exciting year for cross-border collaborators Marcus Whale and Travis Cook. Since releasing the ’Atlantis 2014‘ mix tape in May (the band’s first release since 2012′s sophomore full length ‘Die Young‘), the electronic/dance duo have guested on Yo Gabba Gabba!, have had a track featured on a Vogue / Miranda Kerr video, have collaborated with Synergy Percussion for Vivid Sydney, and have hosted self-help seminars, all while wrapping their highly anticipated third full length record.
New single “Turning” sees Marcus Whale referencing ’90s diva house in an unbridled tribute to joyful feelings of renewal. It’s an upfront and club-friendly taste of forthcoming album ‘Return’, which will feature special guest spots and genre-defying tracks that will stay with you throughout the year and beyond.
“Complete with that trademark exuberance that has been a feature of their music from day one, "Turning" is almost a modern day take on the new jack swing wave that blew up in the late 80s. A grimy, bass-heavy beat is prevalent throughout, leaving Whale's typically impulsive vocals to take center stage.”
“The forthright dancefloor groove that bubbled beneath the surface on Collarbones recent Atlantis 2014 EP explodes into the stratosphere on Turning, the first taste of the duo’s impending LP number three...I feel it all over, and it feels amazing. This sounds like nothing else out there at the moment.”
“Marcus and Travis are back with the new single 'Turning' off their soon to be released third LP and it should be familiar to people who've seen their fucking unparalleled live show in the past year or so. Unashamed '90s house music, it's just plain sexy...”
