Led by Thomas Cockram, Turtle Bay Television have existed in various incarnations since 2012 but have settled on a consistent line up in the past few years, with the recent addition of sax player, Tom Beech, trumpet player, Will Johnson and vocalist, Amy Murray, to bolden their sound. After finding their feet in the local scene, Turtle Bay have gone on to share the stage with various local heroes, including Felicity Groom, Ziggy Ramo, Tired Lion, Demon Days and Ryan Beno. Turtle Bay’s sound is a culmination of various influences including post-punk, folk, noise pop and horror movies, leading to a sound somewhere between Sonic Youth and Broken Social Scene. Their sophomore EP, Scared of Everything, reflects upon the process of being diagnosed with a mental illness and the resulting combination of both confusion and morbid relief. The release tries to make sense of these conflicting states of mind and distills this self analysis into erudite, cathartic post-punk
