C Turtle - Shake It Down

Daniel Turvil

Clocking in at just over 2 minutes, lo-fi indie rock quartet C Turtle ensure to cram as much as humanly possible in to their short lived time span. Taken from their forthcoming new album entitled Expensive Thrills, arriving March 8th on Blitzcat Records, the band's latest single is an exhilarating insight in to what lays ahead as crashing percussion propels their explosive guitar melodies and grungy-inspired vocal delivery. Quirke says of the track: "A big influence to C Turtle is early Beck. Albums like Stereopathic Soulmanure and Mellow Gold which use genre bending to merge hip-hop notions with indie rock have always been really interesting to me so I wanted to try and structure something in a similar way. My first band Honey Creeper did this sort of thing all the time but we rarely could get our live sound to match the recordings but with Shake it Down I think we’ve achieved this. So I see it as kind of a rap song! The lyrics I wrote for it were actually intended for a separate project but when we tried them out on this they worked perfectly. We got Mimiko to sing this one because she pulls off the rapping better than I could." Take a listen for yourselves below.
