Tranquilit­y Base Hotel & Casino,

DOMINO, 2018


At the time of its release in 2018, the band’s surprising sixth album, the ornate and ambitious Tranquilit­y Base Hotel & Casino, was the indie rock equivalent of a concept record based on the theme of a lunar colony. Its baroque, trippy and lounge-pop sound recalled such influences as the Beach Boys, Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg and Tin Pan Alley. This record and subsequent­ly The Car also found Turner channeling his inner Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin in his vocal performanc­es.
