Today, Brooklyn-based nine-piece Turkuaz has released their new album, Life In The City. Following-up 2015’s Digitonium, the nine-track studio album marks Turkuaz’s fifth to date. Merging together the worlds of funk, alternative, rock, R&B, and psychedelia and punctuated by deft musicality and show-stopping singalongs, Turkuaz’s latest studio effort is their most anticipated to date. In addition to previously released “Life In The City” and “If I Ever Fall Asleep”, which was produced by Talking Heads’ Jerry Harrison, you can listen to Turkuaz’s full album below.
