About Turn To Crime

The project of former Awesome Color leader Derek Stanton, Turn to Crime began as ambient explorations before crystallizing into experimental pop songs. Stanton released Turn to Crime's first set of songs, Demonstration I, via his Bandcamp page in 2011, then spent the next few years transforming the project from a solo act into a trio with the addition of Ian Saylor and Dorian Foerg. The 2014 single Sunday's Cool/Forgiveness introduced the band's more structured sound, which was complemented by lengthier, more abstract pieces on their official debut Can't Love. The album arrived that July on Mugg & Bopp Records. Less than a year later, Turn to Crime returned with 2015's Actions, which was recorded in Stanton's basement studio as well as Detroit's Molten Sound. ~ Heather Phares
