Turn To Crime Unveil ‘Light’ video
New album ‘Actions’ out now on Mugg & Bopp
“An uplifting mix of Krautrock, playful synths and candy-pop hooks; Turn To Crime sound like an experiment gone awry in a toy factory…this Detroit DIY trio will crack smiles” NME
“Intense euphoria with repetition, minimalist structures, and enormous hooks” The Line of Best Fit
“As noisy and gnarly as it is uncannily appealing” The 405
“It’s bittersweet joy is something to behold” Clash
“This is record-clerk pop-rock of the highest order — skuzzy, wobbly singer-songwriter ditties and krautrock jams indebted to Lou Reed, Jim O’Rourke, and a legion of wizened post-punks”Stereogum
“Imagine a ’50s beach party that time warps to the future” SPIN
“It sounds like it’s from another time, rollicking along somewhere between doo-wop and greasy drifter-rock with a swaying, offbeat sunniness” The Fader
“Kosmische, post-punk and lo-fi electronic noise” Uncut
To celebrate the release of their new album ‘Actions’, Turn To Crime have unveiled the video for‘Light’.
Director B.A. Miale has said of the visual: “I am a light artist and when I heard the song “Light” it naturally just clicked. I loved the bouncy feel. It made me think of dancing so I asked my friend, go-go dancer Anna Copa Cabanna, to check it out. She loved it too and both of us put our heads together and came up with fun ideas about making the video, the projections and costumes.”

The follow up to last year’s critically acclaimed debut ‘Can’t Love’, is released out on frontman Derek Stanton’s label Mugg & Bopp.
The new album was recorded over the past year in his basement studio in Detroit’s Southwest, Molten Sound. The band exists within its own pocket universe amid the Detroit music scene. Whereas some are beholden to the almost institutional credo of “loud fast rules”, others subscribe to the orthodoxy of established local genres like techno or garage rock. The sole project of Stanton, he has a willing retinue, who share his same passion for music, including local musicians Ian Saylor and Dorian Foerg.
