Suggested Friends: Turtle Taxi

London indie pop Suggested Friends have taken a break from being a band, but before they went on hiatus they released their second album Turtle Taxi, filled with songs about baby swans (Cygnets), impending doom (The Apocalypse (It's Just A Day Away)) and reality checks (Pretty Soon Your Grave Will Be A Landfill). Talking cues from Nineties college rock, English folk, and New Wave they serve up a collection of happy-sad songs that will be championed by the staff of independent record stores.

Turtle Taxi is an album for outsiders and insiders. With its on point observations, lo-fi but effective sound it's destined to be an underground favourite, an epithet that is a guarantee for longevity. Suggest it to your friends who are serious about music.

Christabel: drums, percussion, vocals
Emma: bass, percussion, vocals
Faith: guitar, vocals, piano, synth, ukulele, percussion
