TURNAROUND is a power trio from Kyiv, Ukraine. The band plays (as called by the members) “heavy blues” inspired by such giants of rock music as Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, Ten Years After, Pink Floyd, and modern bands such as Raconteurs, Dead Weather, The Black Keys. Combining bluesrock, psychedelic, classic rock, progressive rock, stoner and garage rock TURNAROUND has created its own unique style (both good for people who love classic rock and younger generation that listens modern rock music). The band gives a lot of attention to the sound of the music that is also called “tube sound”, “warm sound”, or “live sound”. All the songs on the album are recorded live with some overdubs and with minimum of digital effects so popular in modern music. That is done to create atmosphere of late 60’s and for the audience to think that they listen to the music of “love” generation.
