“Just like Hopkins, whose influence on this record is unmistakable, Cooper is an artist that appears to be making music ahead of its time.” Hunger
“Seamlessly mixes alternative, guitar-based songwriting with layered production and fulsome beats” – The 405
TURTLE is the beautiful electronic project from exciting new Glaswegian-based singer, songwriter and producer Jon Cooper.
Colours is the magnificent follow up to Turtle’s critically acclaimed debut Who Knows in 2014.
‘The Floor’ opens the five track EP in style, introducing Turtle’s distinctive vocals over alluring guitar hooks and rising, dreamlike synths. Constantly building, emerging beats propel the track to a motorik climax with Cooper’s vocals enveloping within blissful sounds and rhythm.
Having reached #2 in the Hype Machine popular chart and with over 100k streams, Turtle fans will be pleased to hear that his instrumental masterpiece ‘Lavender’ also features on the EP, along with title track ‘Colours’ and further new tracks ‘Silent Weapons’ and ‘Us’.
With two of the five EP tracks straight-up instrumental and the other three featuring vocal, the release is a perfect example of Cooper’s diverse ability as a beat maker as much as a singer/songwriter.
