The anticipation for a full-length flipturn album was finally quelled on August 19, 2022 with Shadowglow. The 14-track album is a mastery in composition and lyricism, continued hallmarks of flipturn as a band. The trance inducing voice of front man Dillon Basse gives the band a unique psychedelic feel to the band's cinematic tracks. Shadowglow is one of those albums that does not have a single skip, you'll thank us later for this addition to your playlists.


You have not experienced flipturn until you hear them live. Each track is notably amped up for the live audience giving a whole new life to the band's beloved songs. flipturn's recorded music is perfect for the restless introspective night, or the endless sun-streaked summer days; but flipturn live is for the chaotic house parties, or those late nights when you lose track of time with your friends. The energy and intensity that flipturn brings on their live shows is magnetic and when added to the band's abundant talent, it's obvious why flipturn has continued to gain traction.
