With the release of their new album, ‘Altogether’, and the announcement of a UK tour, Turnover continue their busy week with the unveiling of a video for ‘Still In Motion’.
Elaborating on the clip, director Mason Mercer had this to say.
“I talked with Austin about the meaning of ‘Still In Motion’. He told me the song is a reflection on the balance of living in the present, the possibilities of the future, and romanticizing the past. I’m not sure whether he studies it or not, but Austin has always seemed very zen-like to me. Lawn-mowing is not the first thing that comes to mind when discussing zen. Every summer growing up, my brother and I worked for our grandpa mowing countless lawns across the many small towns that surrounded us in the Ozarks. I always liked mowing, it helped me clear my mind. I’d be chewing gum, listening to music, and would eventually completely zone out while mowing.
The idea for this video was that a normal blue-collar worker had somehow landed the job of a lifetime, mowing Heaven’s lawn. It’s an enormous task. Angels and visions of future beauty surround him. Maybe they inspire him to keep working hard, or maybe he doesn’t even notice them, either way he isn’t distracted in the slightest. He’s got work to do.”

The band’s fourth studio album, ‘Altogether’, is out now through Run For Cover Records.
Lover of choons, flums, bukes and such. I like making music. I like writing about music. I like burgers and emo-trap. Also suffer from a slight case of knowitallism. I wish every song had a breakdown.
