What the press have said about previous Turn off the Sun releases:
“Sharp guitar playing, tight, driving drums and raw, passionate vocals. Birmingham band Turn off the Sun take no prisoners. They have all the hallmarks of a really storming live band.”
Tom Robinson – BBC Radio 6
“This is Fantastic! This band are just first class, we really, really love them. Quality track.”
Andrew Marston – BBC Radio Hereford & Worcester Introducing
“This is modern, exciting and every now and then you catch a whiff of what it would have been like if the Foo Fighters had been angrier, edgier and louder. It’s the sort of music that would see arms, legs and hair flailing wildly, joyously and out of control in a sweaty room.”
