“An instant party package of Turkish freakbeat, soundtrack funk and psychedelic synth-pop.”
The Amsterdam band Altin Gün, return with a masterful single - and upcoming album - that widens their critically acclaimed exploration of Anatolian rock and Turkish psychedelic folk to include dreamy 80’s synth-pop and dancefloor excursions. The band are a renowned live act with strings of sold-out shows on three continents, whose recordings are marked by muscular grooves and vibrant melodies. Yol, their third album in as many years - and the follow up to their GRAMMY nominated second album Gece - excitedly continues that trend; while also digging in deep to unveil a new palette of sonic surprises.
“Ordunun Dereleri” – the debut single from Yol - is a reimagining of a traditional Turkish folk song, a classical love story about two doomed lovers, that showcases the band’s thrilling shift towards a synth-driven Europop sound. Mysterious and atmospheric, the track features down-tempo electro beats, majestic synths and Erdinç Ecevit's yearning vocals of unrequited love. The single comes accompanied by the band’s very first narrative video, a gorgeous clip shot in the forests of the Netherlands.
