CHRISTIAN TURNER – “BARELY LISTENING”
Christian Turner is a Canadian indie rock band out of Toronto with Christian Turner (Teenage Kicks) on vocals and guitar, Jeff Takahashi on bass, Gavin McCleod and Mitchell Dunn on guitars, and Konrad Commisso on the drums. Turner spent his formative years immersed in the early 2010s Toronto indie scene, playing in a variety of acts. Their collective philosophy veers towards minimalism: dropping the antics to deliver pure rock’n’roll.
On the heels of their debut single “Nobody But You,” they share their second single “Barely Listening” about being in their 30s and missing hanging out with their friends… even though it was always problematic.
Nostalgic with a little sass and dreamy with sludgy guitars.
“Don’t you ever miss those good ol’ days when you had no cares or responsibilities? Now that I’m in my 30s it’s getting harder to get all our friends together and just hang out.
When we recorded “Barely Listening,” I was frustrated with the lyrics and completely scrapped them. I slept on it, then came back the next day with a new set of lyrics that I felt still captured the feeling of those growing pains – though the original working title stuck.”
