Spunsugar: (You Never) Turn Around

Malmö's Spunsugar had a productive and successful 2020 by means of a series of memorable singles, and the strong debut full length, Drive-Through Chapel, which turned heads the band's way for its astute combination of shoegaze and gothic pop qualities and sounds.

Not long after the album's release, the rising trio continue their booming path with a standalone single which feels like a premium outtake off Drive-Through Chapel, and simultaneously finds the band exploring their synthpop aspect a bit further.

The band explain their intent with detail in a statement: "A little less steel, a little more silk: that was the mantra when (You Never) Turn Around was recorded. It’s the final song in a trilogy about being in a relationship with a person who’s emotionally unavailable (Time Enough at Last and Dial Up Tone from the debut album are the first and second parts). The lyrics are inspired by a hazy memory of a film. In the film the theory goes that when they say goodbye but turn to look at you one last time, you know it’s love. Make no mistake, this is a true Spunsugar song, so you’re guaranteed a meaty rock song. But this single is pop: dreamier than previous releases and crisper in its construction, with a compelling intro, groovier tempo and the sort of singalong feel that your granny might appreciate. Spunsugar might be accused of having sold our souls, but that don't bother us. We never had one to begin with."
