An Interview With Boston’s Donald Grunge

Turnover’s first full length album “Magnolia” was released in 2013. Magnolia is an excellent album from start to finish, however, the band has gone through a complete “overhaul” in regards to their sound. Their two most recent albums, “Peripheral Vision” and “Good Nature”, drastically differ in their overall sound and lyrical content. Peripheral Vision was released in May of 2015 and can only be described as “the perfect Summer album”. It starts off with a song titled, “Cutting My Fingers Off”; from the moment the track starts, the listener is sucked in. The sound Turnover has created is invigorating, innovative and extremely catchy. The lyrical content within these two albums is truly magnificent, poetic and each one tells a tale. Tales of love, heartbreak, addiction and the overall complications that come with, being human.
Austin Getz is able to convey various emotions that many of us feel on a day to day basis, and through melodic interpretation, reminds us that everything is going to be alright. At the end of the day, I believe many of us can relate to Austin and the emotions and scenarios he depicts. The ability to relate to an artist is truly something special; it serves as a reminder that we are all human and that we are simply not going to be “one-hundred percent” everyday.
Turnover’s most recent album “Good Nature”, released in 2017, does not fall short of expectations. The overall sound of this album does not radically differ from “Peripheral Vision”, however, the band did an excellent job at keeping the music “fresh”. Once again, the lyrical content and melodic progressions within this album are nothing short of phenomenal and tell an enchanting story of life, love, heartbreak and the pursuit of happiness.
I have had the personal honor of attending two Turnover concerts within the last couple of years. The first show I attended was during their “Peripheral Vision” tour, and I was completely blown away to say the least. It is extremely rare to witness a band perform and sound better live than they do on their album. The second show I attended was in March 2018, during their “Good Nature” tour. Again, this band exceeded all expectations and put on a spectacular show. Each member of the band is extremely friendly and most of them are willing to speak to audience members at the end of each show and answer any questions about the music as a whole, or specific technical questions.
If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and see Turnover perform live. Turnover’s next show is scheduled for August 25, 2018 in Asbury Park, New Jersey at “Shadow of the City”.
