Intoxicated by the gritty charm of one of the most artistically abundant cities in the world, Brooklyn Rockers, Giant Flying Turtles, are back and gearing up for their upcoming studio album release, ‘Waltz To The World’.
Kicking off with “No Turning Back”, the Brooklyn band of brothers have revitalized their creative energies and begin with a sound that mimics The Police back in their ‘Ghost in the Machine’ days with lyrics laced with mysterious metaphors and an instrumental pizzazz that embodies elements of Modern-Day Rock.
The second track, “Stay Out Late”, bewitches listeners with a well-written effort to create an atmosphere of lusty fascination aching to overcome the ravishing elements that are tied into a night out with a lover that steers Giant Flying Turtles members away from their core and challenges the rockers to soar beyond temptation. “The Devil and Me” is the third track which is a large slice of frantic, jumpy beats with rock sensibilities that meld into catchy lyricism that tells a tale of pure irony pertaining to wasting away days with a human being whose actions put another individual through a mental maze.
The fourth track, “One of a Kind”, begins with artful bluesy instrumentals that lead into soaring vocals that are reminiscent of Rush and an electric midway fusion highlighting Giant Flying Turtles timeless instrumental expression of freedom of joy that is spun with magic that is difficult to dismiss. “River Runs Dry” is the fifth track that slows it down into a passionate lyrical expression of slowing down your mind throughout your one and only ride before your very own river runs dry.
The seventh track, “Three Shades of Blue”, is the epitome of Rockabilly that showcases that Giant Flying Turtles are a dynamic band with the spirit of generations rushing their veins as they venture through a thumping tune with ease. “Hold the Flag” is the eighth track that expands the minds of listeners through lyricism that challenges individuals who are conforming to belief systems that are subconsciously ingrained as we are all brought up within a system that doesn’t accept minds and thoughts that steer from the commonplace.
The tenth track, “Good To Be Alive”, moves to greener pastures as Giant Flying Turtles lyrically exemplify a life simplified through a track that explores rapid thoughts through the first verse that lead into a purer state over the chorus that is abounding with positive force through riding the minds course. Closing out with the title track, “Waltz to the World”, a mix-up of futuristic and retro vibes shine and mesmerize listeners as the resurrection of wisdom comes to light through a track that stirs connections of both the future and the past in unison.
If you’re a fan of bands such as The Cars, The Police, Rush, and REO Speedwagon, then Giant Flying Turtles are the crafty lyricists and band that you’re missing out on. Keep an eye out for the September 23rd release of ‘Waltz to the World’.
