Powered by Audioscrobbler™"It’s hard to know which element of Turtle Giant’s compelling sound is the most intriguing. Is it the old-school psych riffs that they bring to their tunes? Or the smoky, contemplative introspection the Macau trio occasionally slip into? What about the irreverent, intensely reverbed rock energy the band hit at their rollicking peaks? Or perhaps the gruff, smouldering and warm allure of António Conceição's vocals?

Regardless, Turtle Giant boasts a rich tapestry of sound that’s seen the threesome rise quickly to the top of our sister SAR’s scene. And while Macau’s music scene may be small, that hasn’t stopped Turtle Giant from dreaming big.

Actually formed in Brazil in 2009, and consisting of the Ritchie brothers, Beto and Fredji, as well as multi-instrumentalist António Conceição (who’s also known for his solo project, O Monstro), TG have taken their sound far beyond the borders of Macau, from regular sojourns over the water to Hong Kong and festival-hopping around Southeast Asia to Stateside gigs and multi-month tours around the Iberian Peninsula.

After releasing their debut album, Feel to Believe, in 2011, and a follow-up EP last year (All Hidden Places), it looks like Turtle Giant are gearing up for another big year. They’ve recently announced that they’ll be heading to Austin, Texas’ behemoth festival, SxSW, in March. But before they do, there’s some rollicking rock to be done – with local heroes DP and Poubelle International, no less.

Compelling – and loud – it should be."
