NYC based Giant Flying Turtles deliver a delightful and jamming blend of blues, rockabilly, jazz and more on their latest album Waltz To The World.
Immediately hooking listeners with their distinctively uplifting arrangements, memorable lyrics and an abundance of jazz-infused pop appeal, Giant Flying Turtles just became a new top pick of mine.
Each song makes me want to get up and dance. The grooves make you move. The melodies lift your spirits. The rhythms pump your adrenaline. Everything about this refreshing group of musicians and their excellent song crafting guarantee pleased audiences and new fans well into the future. Even when they slow it down, you’ll want to grab the nearest lady and lead her in a dance for the memories.
Packed with eleven songs of pure aural enjoyment, Waltz To The World is an experience you need to add to your to-do list. I hear these guys throw one hell of a live show so if you are in or ever visit NYC, I urge you to try and catch them live. (Send me video and photos if you do!)
The band’s song Raven Hair was featured in the festival favorite One Wall – Kings of Coney Island. Keep My Dream Alive is the theme for the film Shining In The Dark which was nominated in The Moscow International Film Festival resulting in the guys being invited to perform.
