Turnstile bring a giant dose of punk to NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert video series.
The Baltimore based quintet delivered a seven-song set filmed in drummer Daniel Feng’s home. Featuring tracks from their 2021 album Glow On, the band performed surrounded by a perfect set-up for a Tiny Desk Concert live show. Giving an ‘in-studio appearance, stuffed animals covered the walls with frontman Brendan Yates’ Rhodes piano functioning as the tiny desk.
The band opened with a stream of boisterous energy playing ‘Endless’, immediately contrasting the surrounding soft toy backdrop. Working an undeniable funk into their music, the band slowed it down with ‘Underwater Boi’, only to return to form with ‘Blackout’. This alternative track combines the pace with an injection of raw Latin sounds.
The energy matched their kaleidoscope of influence the band playing through ‘Glow On’ tracks ‘Don’t Play’and the melodic and introspective ‘Mystery’. The plummeted headfirst into T.L.C.(Turnstyle Love Connection), taking the set out with the psychodelically forlorn Alien Love Call.
Turnstile will head out on the road kicking off The Turnstyle Love Connection Tour on February 23 in San Francisco, CA. In August, the band will make their way across the country, finishing off in Pasadena.
All tour dates and ticket information can be found on the band’s website.

Everyone should have a soundtrack playing loudly in the background of their life. I was born moshing to my own beat and have never swayed from my love of music. Spreading my passion through the written word is my soul’s purpose. My punk heart beats loudly with the rhythm of my rock soul. I plan to continue to mosh like no one gives a shit.
