In prelude to Dragon Turtle’s second full length and fifth release, Distances, we are releasing this digital only EP featuring their first
single Summer Drive.
Summer Drive is followed by Morning Gator, an ambient track written while Tom was working early mornings on a Pennslyvania golf course, which slowly meanders like a morning fog. Ride the Bike is a track that was originally slated to appear on the Distances LP. The song is about riding a bike through a “rustbelt” town in decay and doing “popper wheelies” in the face of industrial decay. The EP ends with Andy Goes to Town which is a remix created from the Summer Drive outtakes with Andrew Xue on cello.
released June 30, 2014
