Music created with passion. This is what you’re going to get with Turtle Stand, the newest album from Tampa, Florida-based band Phantom Phunk. This rock four-piece blends indie, alternative and progressive into their own sweet sound.
Commenting on the entire recording, the group noted: “The audience can expect a homegrown feel. Rather than trying to push our songs to their potential we just let them unfold naturally, in a way that’s more representative of our true selves. As a result, the sonic feel of the album is more raw, and closer to rock and roll than we intended, but still a very different spin on what feels familiar. The moods within the album are largely inspired by divisions within the band. Creative differences began to have an erosive effect on our morale which took our music to a dim and fractious place. At the same time, those wedges allowed for attempts at more upbeat and optimistic tracks which helped lighten the mood too.”
