Review: Frank Turner – ‘The Next Storm’


A positive and upbeat track with a catchy chorus.

  • 8

‘The Next Storm’ will instantly sound familiar to anyone who has listened to a Frank Turner album before. Many of the elements of the former post-hardcore vocalist turned folk singer’s previously successful tracks are all here as they have been in many hits from previous albums.

Not that that’s a bad thing. The energetic rhythms, anthemic chorus, occasional harmonies, piano accompaniment and backing vocals during the chorus all combine to produce an upbeat and catchy sound that’s sure to be heard on the radio over the next few months.

The chorus shows a somewhat more positive message than the sober tracks of Turner’s previous 2013 album Tape Deck Heart, with the lyrics “I don’t want to spend the whole my life indoors / lay low, and waiting on the next storm / I don’t want to spend the whole my life inside / I wanna step out and face the sunshine” reflecting a determination to  always carry on and overcome whatever life has thrown at you. At its heart it’s a happy and positive track that is sure to pick up the mood of its listeners along the way.

‘The Next Storm’ is out now via Xtra Mile Recordings.
