Virginia Beach Dreampoppers Turnover Premiere New Song 'Bonnie (Rhythm & Melody)'

Aaron Siow


We first got into Turnover two years ago, when the pop-punks-turned-dreampoppers were readying their breakout sophomore album, Peripheral Vision. That album put them on the indie rock map; now, Turnover is back with another LP worked by scene super-producer Will Yip (Tigers Jaw, Title Fight), from which Billboard is excited to premiere a new song.

Below, check out “Bonnie (Rhythm & Melody),” the final track on new LP Good Nature, due Aug. 25 on Run For Cover Records. On Peripheral Vision, Turnover was striving to distance itself from its angsty pop-punk origins, still touring with New Found Glory, while asserting a new identity built around balmy, pulsating shoegaze-inflected indie pop. In the press for Good Nature, they’re talking of Bossa nova, cool jazz, Beach Boys, and Frank Ocean influences.

"We don't make money off Turnover, really," bassist Danny Dempsey admitted to Billboard two years back. That might've changed just a bit, but at its core, the best parts of Turnover remain. They certainly haven’t lost the ol’ pop-punk ear for hooks and melody.

“Bonnie (Rhythm & Melody)” follows previous Good Nature offerings “Super Natural” and “Sunshine Type.” 

Later this year, Turnover will hit the road with Elvis Depressedly and Emma Ruth Rundle to promote the new album on a North American tour beginning Oct. 10 and wrapping in mid-November. Check out those dates here.
