about

from the original press sheet:

TURN PALE is a band, from Bloomington, Indiana, seeking to explore the dark corners of the dancefloor, within a decidedly post-punk aesthetic.

Though TURN PALE includes members of DREKKA and PANOLPLY ACADEMY, the resulting sounds are far from either of these bands, opting instead to caress a much darker, Rough Trade sound from the early 80's'

On their debut single, TURN PALE offers:
• ‘Chance’ - catchy and danceable ala early P.I.L./The Pop Group, with a raw, echoing production that invokes a vintage post punk/death rock sound.

• ‘Mesmerized’ - a cautionary tale of sorts. Devilish vocals, tribal beats, and pure emotion swells up. The Tower of Babel as seen through the Virgun Prunes.

FAVORITE PRESS QUOTES SO FAR:
‘...their horrid clamor of vampire tales and birthday parties... caressing a much darker, Rough Trade sound from the early 80's’- Bloomington Independent

“A recently formed plain-clothes group of musicians that coin a style reminiscent of The Birthday Party and Joy Division, I was psyched to hear something so raw and genuinely inspired by the old school produced from a new band.” - Starvox

“ 3 parts Factory, 1 part 4AD, 1 part Mute” - Indiana Shows List

“If The Birthday Party and Gang of Four fucked in a dirty grimy Missisippian shot-gun-shack then TURN PALE is what they'd give birth to.” - Temporary Structures
