WATCH TURKUAZ: bit.ly/TheGenerator_Vevo

“…one of the most shamelessly fun singles of the summer in the form of ‘70s disco/funk number “The Generator” from their upcoming new album Digitonium. ~ PopMatters.com

“They’re like a cross between Talking Heads and Jesus.” ~ Daytrotter.com

Turkuaz is a Brooklyn-based pop-rock nonet that is redefining funk with their “PowerFunk” sound. Their intricately arranged songs are built on thick grooves, driven by a powerhouse rhythm section and interlaced with swirling guitar and synth lines. On top of this rock solid foundation, lyrical jabs and swells that serve as both subject matter and rhythmic reinforcement are delivered by four distinct vocalists, all framed by tight horn lines and punctuated with left hooks and right angles.

Digitonium (Techne Records), Turkuaz’s second national LP release, has more of a Peter Gabriel and Talking Heads feel and evokes the best of the ’80’s dance music. Upon close examination, the Dada-esque slurry of words and lyrical imagery reveals Digitonium to be a concept album at its core. Repeated phrases are intertwined throughout, and themes of empowerment and self-actualization, glimpsed in metaphors borrowed from Plato’s cave, a dystopian technological future and the archetypal characters of the myths of Avalon are developed through various tracks. Supported by transitional interludes, these elements make Digitonium feel like the score to an animated film, at times.

Following a Summer packed with high profile festival performances throughout North America, Turkuaz will embark on a national club tour in support of this cross-over release, and they shine on stage, as well as in the studio. Constant, coast-to-coast touring over the last three years has earned the band a passionate, growing fan base.

Now, with the support of comprehensive distribution, a commercial AAA, college and specialty radio campaign, first rate publicity, a growing retail presence and a national media partner presenting the tour, Turkuaz is poised to break out for a more mainstream audience.

“…one of the 50 greatest live acts right now.”

“…wholly original music… a band built to crush it for years to come.”
~ San Diego Music Examiner
