Turtle ~ Silent Weapons

Turtle Silent Weapons Artwork!

Who is TURTLE?  A spectacular electronic project of Jon Cooper.  The always impressive musician and producer from Glasgow who has released one gem after another under his alter ego TURTLE!

My first impression of “Silent Weapons” A laid back but steady hitting piece of music that drills down to my subconscious mind!

My take :  I believe some people are meant to create music and TURTLE is the perfect example.  Having been completely mesmerized with earlier tracks like “Who Knows”, I have waited for another TURTLE song to reach out and grab me.  And his latest offering, “Silent Weapons”, does exactly that.   Armed with the talented producer’s creative and intuitive style of intertwining powerful beats and melodies with intense emotion, “Silent Weapons” packs quite a powerful musical punch. Beautifully building from a soft vocal on top of rolling guitar strums to an expansive room filling sound,  the dark energy bubbling underneath the surface takes me to places in my thoughts I have never been before.  Where I can hear my heart beating right along with each constant thump, feeling the growing pangs of uncertainty consuming all the air around me.  Only to be abruptly snapped back into reality in the end!

“Silent Weapons” is one of 5 great tracks from an upcoming “Colours” EP set to drop May 11th on Beatnik Creative!  Preorder it here!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
