LISTEN: Turnpike Glow — “Inflatable Optimism” Album

The first time we heard this London-based band’s single “1986,” off of their latest “Inflatable Optimism album, we were hooked. And we weren’t the only ones — both Daytrotter and AOL Spinner featured their single as well.

And because we loved almost everything we heard on Turnpike Glow’s latest album, it made it really difficult to pick a standout track from their four-song EP, which can be best described as a catchy compilation of synth-Brit pop meets garage-rock.

Needless to say, we’ll be first in line to buy “Inflatable Optimism” when it drops in the US on Jan. 13. In the meantime, take a listen to our favorite tracks.
