We say:

George Turner is a musician and artist who has been described as the emerging face of Wellington’s pop scene. Turner previously recorded and performed as Max Worth, with Issy Beech of Noisey noting the shift from synth to post-punk in his latest work.

Turner released Thank You for Your Time in March 2017, recording and producing the EP himself while based in Eastbourne. Influences include Black Marble, Blood Orange and Arca, with Turner describing the EP’s themes as based around alienation and the internet.
