TURKUAZ Release New Single & Video “If I Ever Fall Asleep”

Today, Brooklyn-based nine-piece Turkuaz have released another single, “If I Ever Fall Asleep”, off their upcoming album Life In The City. To accompany the release, the band has also released video of the song being performed live from the studio of vocalist/guitarist Dave Brandwein’s Galaxy Smith Studios – WATCH HERE. Avowed fans of The Talking Heads,they tapped Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads to produce the single. The band’s signature upbeat funk is a contrast to a role-play of the paranoid ramblings of an insomniac before embracing his own unraveling.

“If I Ever Fall Asleep” is the second single from Turkuaz’s forthcoming album Life In The Citydue out September 28th. The release follows the title single “Life In The City” – WATCH HERE. The eye-popping animated video, which  continues the story of On the Run,boasts otherworldly synths and rapturous horns as Turkuaz talks about being so preoccupied with the hustle and bustle of modern life that we’re blind to what’s really going on underneath. Life In The City is available now to pre-order – CLICK HERE.

Turkuaz is currently on the road in support of the new album, travelling across the U.S.Epic performances will electrify Red Rocks in Morrison, CO on September 23rd and The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY on October 19th before the band closes out 2018 with a bang on New Year’s Eve at The Palladium in Worcester, MA. Tickets are on sale now –CLICK HERE for ticket info.

A kaleidoscope of colors, sounds and personality make up the vibrant music of Turkuaz. Balancing male-female harmonies, strutting guitars, wild brass sections, and interminable grooves, this spirit takes shape in the neon hues donned by each respective member on stage via larger-than-life performances that turn into massive dance parties. Bringing light and a self-fulfilling positivity into what can sometimes be a dark and challenging world, Turkuazignites an explosion of funk, alternative, rock, R&B, and psychedelia punctuated by deft musicality and show-stopping singalongs on their fifth full-length album, Life In The City.
