Turkuaz Unveils ‘On The Run’ Dance Track


Powerhouse funk outfit Turkuaz has unveiled a disco-heavy single produced by Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads fame. “On The Run” is a catchy tune from the Brooklyn-based nine-piece, which is accompanied by a video put together by Jay Sansone of Human Being Media.

“Working with Turkuaz was a a total blast,” said Harrison in a statement announcing the new single. “We had first met when my daughter and I performed ‘Take Me to the River’ with them at The Fillmore in San Francisco. Playing that night, I was impressed with the nuances they had picked up from Talking Heads and knew that they would be fun to work with.” Harrison added, “Their level of musicianship was inspiring and we moved quickly through the recording process. I wanted to spend some time drawing out the power of their singing which can become submerged with such a powerful band between them. I think the results speak for themselves.”

Turkuaz recruited Chris Roberti of Broad City to star in the “On The Run” video. The late-night-club-escapade video was filmed at the House Of Yes in Brooklyn. “My filmmaking career started by filming parties and making show recaps, so this video was a call back to the basic formula of party capture; Tell a story, capture the insanity,” Sansone elaborated.

Turkuaz returns to the road on October 18 and has a busy fall lined up.
