It’s with a mixture of joy and fear that I wrap my tentative ears around the new Turbowolf, primed for classic rock to again be somehow twisted into the sound of rock future. But for those au fait with the Bristol mainstays, it’s not just about caustic, genre-transcending riffery. From the sampling of ‘Solid Gold’, to the wordplay of ‘Rabbit’s Foot’, to the stonking chorus of ‘Nine Lives’, they expand on the bar set by their debut with poise.
It’s easy to become fatigued with guitar-music, but now and then something comes along with enough guts and personality to reinvoke the excitement of a fifteen-year-old fumbling along to their new favourite band.
