Jam of the Week: Gavin Turek – Good Look for You

California singer Gavin Turek may as well have stepped out of 1970s. She’s making new dance music with an obvious admiration for old-school disco and the electro of 70s and 80s.

As well as singing and songwriting, Turek has contributed to music by TokiMonsta and soul man Mayer Hawthorne’s group, Tuxedo. She’s also release tributes to Donna Summer and electronic music pioneer Giorgio Moroder.

The bright ‘Good Look for You’ is the stuff of beachfront drives, palm trees, clear blue skies and boundless potential. Landing somewhere between Dornik, Norma Jean Wright and Donna Summer, it’s disco for the golden hour – say, that time just before you meet up with friends for a weekend trip. It’s got me pining for a full-length from Turek, not to mention a collab’ with fellow retro-head, Shura.

Good Look for You can be streamed on Gavin Turek’s SoundCloud page.
