Grunge band Turfboy has just released a new single called '(L)earn' from their upcoming album 'At Tension'.

Bray's León Ó Gríofa plays bass in the band, with Conor Walls from Mayo-Galway on guitar and vocals, Colin Kelly from Longford on vocals and guitar, and Ollie Mortimer from Roscommon on drums.

They plan to release a new track on the eighth of each month, leading up to the album release on August 8.

The album 'At Tension' was recorded in Trackmix Studios Dublin by Michael Richards late last year.

Turfboy was formed in November 2012 by Colin, Ollie and Tony Carberry.

The musicians had a mutual love for 90s alternative music and aim to recreate the sound of their youth.

They are influenced by a host of greats from the 90s and earlier, including Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Led Zeppelin, Melvins, Acrobats of Desire and many more.

January of 2013 saw the trio joined by guitarist, Conor Walls, and immediately, more than ever before, the band could feel that they were on to something special.

In late 2014, Tony left the band and was succeeded by León Ó Gríofa, formally of 24 Broken Amps.

They've been wrecking the gaff ever since!

Coming from different parts of Ireland, the band is based in Dublin City, and is most often found playing shows there.

2020 sees Turfboy pushing the boundaries of their soundscape, and really making the best of all of their different influences and techniques.

Turfboy's music can be found on bandcamp, Spotify, and other platforms.
