Check Out “Irish Name,” The First Song From Turnspit’s New Album
Chicago’s Turnspit has released “Irish Name,” the lead track from the band’s forthcoming album, Desire Paths. Check the new track out below. Turnspit’s new record is Riot Fest tested-and-approved, and scheduled for release on February 16 via Dodgeball Records.
Singer Gillian McGhee spoke with Brooklyn Vegan about the new song:
On the surface, “Irish Name” is a song about a former love — what excited me, what drove me insane, what worked and what I wish for that person now. But it’s also a dialogue with myself about how I need to keep a better balance between the needs of a relationship and my own personal needs. I have tended to lose a little or a lot of myself in the past, and it’s something I’m actively working on today. I’ve found that songwriting can sometimes operate like a subliminal message to yourself or a future version of yourself, and I definitely feel like I was trying to tell myself something when I wrote this song.
