“Turmoil” By The Lathums

“Turmoil” is the latest track to be drawn from the Lathums’ forthcoming album, From Nothing To A Little Bit More. In a first for The Lathums, the accompanying video features singer and songwriter, Alex Moore’s beloved dog, George sharing the spotlight with his master. From Nothing To A Little Bit More drops on February 23, 2023.

The Lathums opened up to say that their second album would be ‘an act of rebellion, having seen the rules of the game’. No more is that evident than on Turmoil as the less-compromising three-piece demand more of themselves and unapologetically make most use of the tools left at their disposal.

Entering the studio in early 2021 with Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Bombay Bicycle Club) and recognising the limitations they had previously imposed on themselves through endearing naivety, songs such as Turmoil were treated to the kinds of enriching augmentation, in this case intricate piano lines and cinematic orchestration, they’d innocently overlooked first time around.

By including Turmoil amongst an album running order that includes every relationship stage, not least the yearning loneliness of fan-favourite, Crying Out, Moore, recognises and explains the developing narrative, saying: “I’ve only had like one proper girlfriend and it’s definitely like three different steps all in one album. Pre, during, and post-relationship. All of them are horrible.”

A step away from the deep, lyrical content, guitarist, Scott Concepcion directs attention towards the band’s growing technical prowess, saying: “I’ve developed a better understanding of all the different instruments now. I did the full take of ‘Turmoil’ on the piano after a trained, classical pianist had shown me the arrangement.”
