The Turn-Ons describe their sound as Skagit/Brit psych-pop. They remind me a lot of The Church and The Chills and a little of The Verve. This is another great Seattle band that I should have been hip to a long time ago – they’ve been together for over 10 years now and have played shows with the Strokes, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Imperial Teen.
They’ve got a great new album called Curse and it’s available for free at www.theturnons.com. I was able to check it out yesterday but haven’t been able to access their site today. If you can’t get on either I suggest trying again in a day or two and in the meantime head over to their MySpace page where you can hear a couple of the new songs.
Here’s a video of The Turn-Ons performing their song “Stop Waiting” at The High Dive back in September of 2006.
