The Su­perego Has Landed

Sci-fi con­spir­a­cies and new synths helped Turin Brakes ex­per­i­ment with their sound

Total Guitar - - ACOUSTIC -

Break­ing away from per­sonal lyrics saw Olly and Gale go down a bit of a rab­bit hole re­gard­ing new top­ics. “There’s a track about the Large Hadron Col­lider /– they cre­ate these black holes and di­men­sions, and that co­in­cides with a lot of this weird stuff hap­pen­ing in the world,” says Gale.

These fu­tur­is­tic mus­ings also led to ex­per­i­men­ta­tion with new tech. “We’ve dis­cov­ered the poly­phonic [Elec­troHar­monix] Su­perego Synth En­gine,” Gale ex­plains. “It’ll freeze the note you’re play­ing, then you can put loads of other stuff on top of it. You hit that thing and there’s an­other per­son in the room. The band’s all revved up and every­one’s go­ing for it.”
