    Who Cares What You Think?
Merging the light, the organic, the ecstatic with the monolithic, the fuzzy, the droney, Turtle Skull have forged a reputation around their signature ‘flower doom’ sound.
Drawing on diverse influences from Sleep and Black Mountain to Dungen and Brightblack Morning Light, the band aim to create an immersive and transformative experience.
And that’s how it all started. Before they even had a name, they’d written and recorded their self-titled debut record, a varied compilation of emotive, riff-driven soundscapes. The process of that recording session resonated with the band members on a spiritual level, catalysing the development of their now well-respected live show.
They’ve since played festivals Folk Rhythm Life (VIC), King Street Crawl (Syd), Rise of the Riff (Bris), Nicefest (Syd), Wo Fest (Melb), and Psyfari (ACT) , and supported leading International acts like Earthless, Naxatras, Yawning Man, Wo Fat and Australian heavy psych groups Stonefield, Flyying Colours, Buried Feather, The Laurels and Child.
Turtle Skull will release ‘Rabbit’ - the first single from their much-anticipated follow up album ‘Monoliths’ in early 2020 with the full record to follow shortly after. Unlike the spontaneous approach to the first, this piece is the product of a more carefully considered process. It’s everything the first record is and more - heavier riffs, deeper emotion, and the intricacies of a fully developed concept.
