Turn Zero releases newest single, ‘Petty’

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...

Nah, we c-c-comin’ for ya)   Got my two step Winning grin My finger guns are ready to shoot   (Ooh wah wah wah-ooh, wah wah oohwah)   I’m gonna dance all night I got a hankerin’ to shake off some blues   (You done a bunk, we’ll get you, boo)   At first I find the atmosphere delicious As I join them in their jaunty jamboree...

Promise To Myself is a Alt Pop-Punk Alternative band from Phoenix, AZ. Their fun and creative energy can be described as if Fall Out Boy, All Time Low, and Waterparks had a fight to the death in a game of dodgeball, and the winner end up being Big Time Rush.  Inspired by “Dial Tones” from As It Is; the band was formed by Karl Nagy (Lead Vocals and Bass), Brad Stockton (Lead Guitar), Zack...
