“More epic beauty and textural richness than the vast majority of 2012’s albums.”
— The Sunday Herald, Top 50 Albums Of 2012

Turning Plates are a Glasgow-based post rock quintet who came together to create new soundscapes and introduce fresh textures to contemporary music.

Since their formation in 2011 the band's releases have garnered critical acclaim. Their first single 'The Tin Man' won Playmusic Magazine's Award for Best Production of 2011 and their EP 'Escapism' was listed as Number 13 in The Herald's Top 50 Albums of 2012.

With several prestigious shows under their belt, including tours throughout both the UK and the East Coast of America in 2012 during Hurricane Sandy, 2013 has seen the band locked in the recording studio producing their debut album. With an altogether much more mature sound than their previous work, the album is a collection of tales about wilderness, discovery and isolation. These stories are used as a metaphor, the underlying concept being a commentary on the development of the internet and the unprecedented effects it has had on society.
