Heavy Turn is a love song,” says the band. “It’s about being in love with your best friend and just getting lost in those feelings. “It has more rock influence than on our previous releases – it still stays true to our roots, but it’s a bit more lighthearted lyrically.”

sunbleached have been working towards their extended play since last year, teasing two singles in the process. The quartet have showcased their new tracks live across the Brisbane circuit and will be joining Movements and Boston Manor on the Brisbane leg of the tour on March 9 at The Triffid.
