S2: 21 - Austin and Casey Getz from Turnover Discuss Growing Up on the Road, How Playing Live is the Best Yardstick for Measuring New Material, Rubbish Tour Vans and Lots More
I was worried I’d maybe taken on a little too much lately. Turns out I had. I missed an episode and I apologise for that.
The good news is that I’ve managed to bank a bunch of interviews and ALSO start two new podcasts. Silver linings etc.
Turnover are a great band. If you’ve made it this far, you probably already know this. If you don’t know that already, you’ve probably already guessed that’s why I interviewed them in the first place. Either way, their new album Good Nature is one of my favourite records of the year.
Taking the melody from all your favourite emo bands and shooting it through with some Smiths-esque guitar tones and wonderful Beach Boys tinged vocals, the whole thing is a lovely, warm hug of a record.
Austin and Casey Getz - singer/guitarist and drummer respectively –have toured a ton, written a lot, and basically lived the life of any other touring band for a number of years. They’re super chill guys, and enjoyed this wee chat we had together. We covered a lot of ground in such a short space of time, taking everything from the way people change as they grow up, how people change when they grow up on the road together, what it’s like being away from home and almost stuck in a bubble, the writing and recording process behind the new record a ton more. Hope you dig this interview as much as I did.
