Stream Turbo Fruits’ Sweet and Tangy New Album ‘No Control’

The Nashville quartet's fourth LP comes out next week

Nashville quartet Turbo Fruits definitely have all the energy and the non-saccharine sweetness that their name implies, and fourth album No Control is a solid 11-track collection of crisp, hook-filled garage-pop songs about love, drugs, death and other rock’n’roll concerns. Produced by Patrick Carney of the Black Keys, the album breezes along like the springtime, balancing power-pop gems like the quit-while-we’re-ahead plea “Don’t Let Me Break Your Heart Again” with weightier fare like the alcoholic confession “Friends.”

No Control is my favorite Turbo Fruits album yet,” says Fruits singer/guitarist Jonas Stein. “We put some real heart and soul into it.  Partying and getting laid is fun but this go around we had some real life heartache going on.  I stayed sober for two months and it really peeled the Band-Aid off of some deep seeded emotions.” Stream the album below, which sees official release April 20 on Melvin Records / Thirty Tigers, and check out the band’s upcoming North American tour dates as well.
