"Hook Turns' debut album "Night Shift" is a brilliant collection of indie rock bliss that draws from a heavy singer/songwriter point of view. Headed by Australian musician Andrew Bonnici, the album displays a unique brand of intensity and charm on songs like "Same Old Mess" and "Multitudes" and you really get a sense of sincerity and the experiences that went into crafting the record. "Inland Sea" has an undeniable flair that's full of catchy melodies that one could easily link to the Jesus And Mary Chain or The Smiths but with an underlying country feel, while "Las Manos" is nothing short of epic. "Night Shift" has all the makings of a classic as the passion and fire that's projected throughout the songs are sure to win over fans from around the globe."
-Dave Allison

"Eclectic at the core and creative all the way to the top, Hook Turns new LP “Night Shift” accomplish a complex yet serene journey musically with each and every song. Each track captures a moment, not just from the songwriter, but for the listener as well. This is an album that soothes the soul and captivates the heart with every well-placed note and melody. And that is a rare thing!"

"Next up is the debut album from the Australian duo Andrew Bonnici and Andrew Alves, better known as Hook Turns. Their latest release titled "Night Shift" was released back in October and delivers the charm of being finessed by the wonderful songwriting of Bonnici. The new 10 song release begins with the relaxed opener "First Sun"as the music and melody are a breeze to follow. They slow the tempo down gracefully on "Same Old Mess' and "Not A Sound" as their sound bringing together elements of folk, country and soft rock music. The quiet acoustics of "If I Can Make It Home" keep you on their deep sonic journey, before finishing the album with the gentle folk delivery of "Better Days" and the six-minute plus journey of "Las Manos", which features some truly amazing songwriting."

Hook Turns are a Melbourne indie rock duo featuring Andrew Bonnici of bands "Khancoban" and "Taylor Project", and Andrew Alves of "Miserable Little Bastards", "Danny Walsh Banned" and "Clinkerfield".
