In late 2015, a group of high school friends started playing music in a Fernandina Beach, Florida garage. It did not take long for the five to realize their mutual ambition for playing music on the national stage. Today, they make up the band flipturn, which has been taking the Florida indie scene by storm and capturing the hearts of music lovers around the world.
flipturn is comprised of Dillon Basse (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Tristan Duncan (lead guitar), Madeline Jarman (bass), Taylor Allen (synth) and Adrian Walker (drums). With a fun, feel-good sound that takes influence from artists such as Hippo Campus and Portugal. The Man, flipturn seamlessly blends elements of surf rock, garage, new wave, and pop.
March 2017 saw the release of flipturn’s debut EP,
Heavy Colors. Achieving over 500,000 streams in less than a year, Heavy Colors has been met with a wave of positive reviews from critics and fans alike.
flipturn has performed throughout Florida and has provided support for Magic City Hippies and Glass House Point, among others. In 2016, flipturn took home first prize at the Gainesville Impact Battle of the Bands. The band’s music, youthful energy and exciting stage presence translates into a captivated audience chanting, “One more song!” at the end of each show.
To promote their upcoming EP, flipturn will be touring around the eastern half of the United States in 2018.
