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), Taylor Allen (synth), Madeline Jarman (bass), and Adrian Walker (drums). With a fun, feel good sound that takes influence from artists such as Hippo Campus, Alvvays and Coast Modern, 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 320,000 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 artists including Saint Motel and Magic City Hippies. In 2016, flipturn took home first prize at the Gainesville Impact Battle of the Bands. In 2018, they became the third Swamp Records artist to win the Destination Okeechobee contest and will be performing on the mainstage at the third Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival.
To promote their upcoming EP, flipturn will be touring around the United States in summer 2018.
