One of the highlights of a triumphant Glastonbury performance (that I watched live at my desk at work with my headphones in, much to the annoyance of everyone who wanted me to do some actual work), Turn To Gold is the latest single from West Yorkshire 'coalmine rock' quintet Carnabells. A mixture of their classic vintage rock 'n' roll core style with vocal harmonies galore and classic rockabilly styling, but with an edgier, more contemporary feel. These boys are coming of age and really mellowing into their sound, and it's great to hear that maturity coming through.
Carnabells songs always feel really upbeat and summery, and Turn To Gold is no exception. With a solid year of performances behind them and a tight, well-written songlist, plus a sackload of personality, 2015 could well become the year they break through.
