Turn Zero releases newest single, ‘Petty’

Listen here

Valentine’s Day, a time to celebrate love in all of its forms—even the darker side that takes you straight to your feels. That’s what you get when you listen to Phoenix, Arizona-based, alternative rock band Turn Zero’s latest single, ‘Petty’. We all feel for a relationship where something didn’t quite work out, and you wish you could walk in their shoes and try to understand how the other person lives while knowing what they left behind.

This emotion-driven song crescendos with a beautiful duet between lead vocalist Emily Grieve and Love Like Fiction’s vocalist Nick Barker. ‘Petty’ is a ballad / bop about the slow demise of a relationship between two unfaithful lovers who become dramatically different to each other. The song is broken up by an amazing guitar solo by John Curtis-Sanchez which tugs at the feels even further. Accentuated by Branden Mosley, this guitar solo comes at the perfect time in the song’s structure. Meanwhile, bassist Ash Hendrickson weaves dreamy, rhythmic bass lines with the consistent, powerful drumming from Ben Palmer. Overall, the song communicates a “love-stalgic” expression of what it’s like to be with someone, have them leave, and then wonder what could have gone differently.

Fresh off the bands’ first release with 80/20 Records in November, Turn Zero has kept it fresh, and kept it real. After performing at the Ultimate Ear booth at NAMM in January, and an upcoming  this local Phoenix band is on its way to becoming a household name. Continuing to use their emotions as a driver, this newcomer surges forward with passion and fearlessness; and we can’t wait to hear what they have in store.

Lyrics:

He’s petty now

It’s heavy now

And he don’t taste the same way

We’ve come this far

But I pushed too hard

And I’m the one who wouldn’t stay

 

But I’ve longed 

To know 

How it feels in your shoes

How you live while knowing

I’m not the one you’d choose

 

She’s petty now

It’s heavy now

And she don’t taste the same way

Held back for too long

Thought we had a bond

But I shouldn’t have kept her at bay

 

But I’ve longed 

To know 

How it feels in your shoes

How you live while knowing

I’m not the one you’d choose

 

And I’ve longed to know

How it looks in your eyes

How you live while knowing

You’re leaving us behind

 

I’m talking to you but you just aren’t listening and I’m hearing your voice but i hear only screaming

And try as I might, i only move backwards

Cuz I can’t get past the you I knew I before

 

I hope I wake and this’ll all just be a dream

Or maybe next time I can say just what I mean

To your face not to your back and I pray you’ll do the same

I hope I don’t leave today knowing none of this has changed

 

And I’ve longed (please just look at me now)

To know (I know that something is wrong) (I wont give up what we have)

How it looks in your eyes (don’t turn your back on us here) 

How you live while knowing 

You’re leaving us behind
