Shane Turner Announces New Album as Brave Parents
Published Feb 22, 2013Shane Turner's resume includes contributions to acts like the Choir Practice, Woodpigeon and Fanshaw, and in 2012 he released a self-titled full-length under the name Shane Turner Overdrive. For his next record, the songwriter has relocated from Vancouver to Toronto and formed a new band called Brave Parents. Their album Someone to Jump Out at You is due out February 26.
The record was recorded as a duo by Turner and April Leino, although the lineup has now swelled to four members. It's being billed as Turner's sophomore album, despite the fact that it's being released under a new moniker.
According to the band's press materials, Someone to Jump Out at You moves away from the lo-fi sound of Shane Turner Overdrive in favour of a "darker and more polished pop sound full of invigorating textural melodies, sonic unease and elegant noise."
Scroll past the tracklist to watch a pair of grainy, Super-8-quality music videos for the tuneful album cuts "Party Bag" and "Don't Ask." These offer a promising glimpse of the album's atmospheric, low-key sound.
