THE LATE DAVID TURPIN 

Romances

[Self-Release]

It speaks to an absolute unfettered ambition, set off by a very brief death from hypothermia, that singer-songwriter David Turpin’s fourth album can even attempt to tackle the layers and substances of love in its entirety.

The stroke of genius here is Turpin’s turn as a director, ‘casting’ ten different singers, including Villagers’ Conor O’Brien, across the album’s tracks, to lay out different scenes and examples of the sensitivities of love.

The effect is a sonically and aesthetically complete work, and an affecting one at that, at its most intimate.
