Turrentine Jones – ‘Della May’


Turrentine Jones released a couple of very good tracks last year but their latest effort, ‘Della May’, blows everything else they have done to date out of the water.

The Manchester based trio continue to embrace their quite obvious affection for old (‘5os/’60s) r&b, rock ‘n roll and blues influences, yet, they manage to keep it sounding pretty fresh. A Hammond organ fuels the groove as ‘Della May’ bristles with jaunty enthusiasm, its infectious swagger warms its way to the heart. Rousing stuff, no question.

‘Della May’ is out on February 22nd and it is fair to say Turrentine Jones have kicked off 2013 in quite some style.

Mancunian’s Turrentine Jones have, by all accounts, been causing quite a stir in their native Manchester on the back of several self-released demos.

The bands first single proper, ‘Slam The Door’, sees a melding of a slew of rock and blues influences combine with swirling organ, rapid-fire drumming and lead singer Neville’s distinctive croaky drawl. What we are left with is a rousing sound of effortless swagger, a kind of bastard child of The Stones and The Animals.

‘Slam The Door’ is released as the A-side of Le Debut and the video is below.
