Turin Brakes are the modern English duo, comprising Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian, hailing from Balham, London.
They had a UK top 5 hit with their song “Painkiller (Summer Rain)” and are joined on stage by their live band, consisting of Rob Allum and Eddy Myer.
Since starting out in 1999, the band have sold around 1 million records internationally. They are currently signed to Cooking Vinyl.
A decade and a half into a career that’s inspired artists as diverse as the Staves and Flux Pavilion, these are the questions posed by the sublime sixth album from Turin Brakes.
From the majestic opening swoop and swirl of Time and Money through to the elegiac campfire slide of closer Goodbye, We Were Here finds the band – Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian along with long time collaborators Rob Allum and Eddie Myer – at their most assertive and consistent with a hypnotic collection of songs that nods to classic releases of the ’70s and also to the triggers of existential dread that sit right at the heart of the information age.
