Turnaround is the first music video for Aotearoa band, A HoriBuzz. Led by the late Aaron Tokona (Cairo Knife Fight), the video explores the dark and funny sides of a man trying to turn his life around. 

Tokona described the song as one about transformation, “...basically the song is about a guy who’s done a lot to mess up his life... ultimately, the journey is really about forgiving himself and finding the courage to move past his mistakes.”
