Hear Sydney Sprague Cover Turnstile’s “UNDERWATER BOI”


Phoenix, AZ singer-songwriter Sydney Sprague has released a cover of Turnstile‘s “UNDERWATER BOI“. That song appeared on the melodic hardcore outfit’s 2021 breakout album “GLOW ON“.

Sprague‘s take on the album standout is being issued as part of the ‘Changing Tides‘ compilation being put out by Rude Records. Proceeds from that will benefit Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Sprague commented:

“‘GLOW ON‘ by Turnstile has been my hyper-fixation record since it came out, and I really love ‘UNDERWATER BOI‘ in particular. I figured since it has water in the title it’d be a good fit for a compilation directed towards benefitting ocean clean-up efforts.

When Rude approached me about contributing to the Changing Tides compilation, I was super excited. I’ve spent most of my life playing covers for a living but I’ve never gotten around to releasing any. Working on songs that aren’t mine scratches a totally different part of my brain and I really enjoy it.

My bass player / partner / collaborator and I recorded it in our home studio. It was a fun project for us especially after being so focused on my new record, somebody in hell loves you, for the last year. It’s really the first thing we’ve worked on since making the record and it was a nice way to ease back into recording mode.”
