One of the really good things about reviewing music is finding a little gem that you weren’t quite expecting! That can definitely be said of David Turpin’s The Bone Dance.
Steming from the dance/electronica genre and citing Emily Bronte, Margot Kidder and Franz Marc as influences, Mr Turpin has a winner on his hands. Hints of, perhaps, Pet Shop Boys (Neil Tennant vocal style) are scattered throughout the track. Produced by the whizz that is Steve Shannon, I think Neosupervital has a contender to his Irish Electronica King throne. This one’s going on my Ipod!
Taken from the forthcoming album, ‘Haunted!’, ‘The Red Elk’ is actually a sonic masterpiece with amazingly understated vocals. The addition and production of the string arrangement on this track bring it to a different level.
David Turpin is my new favourite Irish Act! I cannot wait for the album!
