“Rearview” delivers a blend of hypnotic emo tones, intricate guitars and a delectably moreish chorus; a dazzling but cathartic showcase of what’s in store on their upcoming EP.

Filling the void with what Mall Emo has been lacking in the current “emo revival”, Mighty Tortuga’s upcoming EP, The Plague Inside Your Head features five tracks of introspective and finely crafted emo/alt-indie, nodding to frontrunners of their respective genres including Mayday Parade, Bad Suns, and Pinegrove.
Since the release of 2019 debut EP, Letting Go the Connecticut crew have honed a soundscape that is both intimate and accessible. TJ Redding’s compelling lyricism is the perfect narration, and the band’s storytelling and memorable hooks have seen them pick up acclaim from genre tastemakers including Kerrang, Idobi Radio and Substream Magazine, as well as catching the attention of former Taking Back Sunday man Fred Mascherino.
In summer 2022, Mighty Tortuga unveiled five track EP Eternal Sunshine on Mascherino’s Heading East Records, with the guitarist and The Color Fred founder also behind the controls on The Plague Inside Your Head.
Mighty Tortuga have burst into 2023 with a trio of singles. Following on from February’s “Twin Graves” and the captivatingly anthemic “Let Me Down” is new single “Rearview”.
