‘Turn the Car Around’ is a record that I’ve been building up to for the last seven years’, says Coombes. It’s a record of feeling, an album that captures the ups and downs of modern life and all the small print in between. Written and recorded by Coombes in his gloriously ramshackle Oxfordshire outhouse Studio, he has emerged with the best work of his illustrious career. It’s an album that both taps into the sonic palettes and lyrical themes of its predecessors and marks the third and final part of a trilogy of records alongside 2015’s Mercury and Ivor Novello nominated sophomore album ‘Matador’ and 2018’s ‘World’s Strongest Man’. At the same time it carves a bold new way forward for one of the UK’s most gifted and cherished singer-songwriters. ‘There’s a lot of subject matter in there that I’ve played with and maybe not managed to see through in the past. I’ve evolved and I feel like I’ve got better at what I do’.After Matador (2015) and World’s Strongest Man (2018), Gaz Coombes has finally completed his trilogy with Turn the Car Around, and the former Supergrass frontman doesn’t deviate from his tried-and-tested path. Many a good tune is played on an old fiddle, and so he has once again worked with producer Ian Davenport in his Oxford studio to create this recent studio album. Seven years in the making, he states that the record ‘captures the highs and lows of modern life and all the fine print in between’. On this compact 37-minute long record (a real boredom buster, save for the closing track, ‘Sonny the Strong, Dance On’, which is a little dull), the Englishman uses music to paint vivid, lyrical and contemporary pictures. ‘Overnight Trains’, whose slow piano intro precedes a beautiful crescendo, and ‘Don’t Say It’s Over’, with its rich orchestration and synth loops, are two incredible tracks that can be found on this release. ‘Long Live the Strange’, which has a slight Arctic Monkeys vibe to it, also deserves a special mention, as does the stunning title track. It’s a hat-trick for Gaz Coombes! – Charlotte Saintoin
