Flipturn Debuts Whales cover art via Big Hassle for use by 360 MAGAZINE


Fresh off an entrancing set at Bonnaroo, flipturn today releases the official music video for Whales. The latest single from their upcoming debut album Shadowglow, Whales holds a magnifying glass over the effects of seemingly insurmountable pressure. After amassing over 50 million streams on Spotify alone from previous EPs and singles, the band’s debut album will be released in its entirety on August 19. Stream the official video for Whales HERE.

Directed and edited by longtime collaborator Amanda Laferriere, the video for Whales incorporates the motif of dark versus light which appears across much of Shadowglow. Shot in black and white, the band performs in an isolated room perhaps the most intimately one can experience a flipturn performance without the roar of fanfare like at their recent performances at Bonnaroo, Shaky Knees, Hangout, SunFest, and countless headline shows. Clean and understated, this video keeps things direct, while conveying the weight of the song’s subject matter.

Along with the upcoming release of the band’s debut album, comes the Shadowglow Tour. Beginning tomorrow, the tour will run through the rest of the year, moving from coast to coast. Tickets for all shows are on-sale now and all tour information can be found here and below. Mainstays of this Summer’s festival circuit, flipturn will be making upcoming stops at Levitate and Lollapalooza, giving fans plenty of opportunity to experience the magnetism of a flipturn live show. Following their debut album release, the band will be putting on their own curated festival, Playground Music Festival, in Gainesville, FL one of the cities that was deeply important to their formative years as a band.

So far, flipturn has released Playground, Halfway, Brooklyn Baby, and Whales of their upcoming album. These releases have been met with praise from the likes of ConsequenceV MagazineAltPress and EARMILK. The singles have also found their way onto Spotify’s All New IndieundercurrentsModern EclecticTodayߣs Indie Rock and Ultimate Indie playlists as well as over one thousand independent playlists.


In the time since 2015, flipturn has mushroomed to reaches far beyond the walls of the Fernandina Beach garage they first practiced in. Built up by Dillon Basse (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Tristan Duncan (lead guitar), Madeline Jarman (bass), Mitch Fountain (synth), and Devon VonBalson (drums), the band is turning into a staple of the indie scene. With over 50 million streams on Spotify alone, countless sold out shows across the US, and tours with Mt. Joy, Rainbow Kitten Surprise and Wilderado, the band has a lead foot on the gas pedal. This year will see flipturn joining the prestigious lineups of Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Shaky Knees, Hangout, SunFest, and Levitate. Fans can also look forward to the band’s upcoming debut album Shadowglow which will be released on August 19 and accompanied by a run of headline tour dates.
