Following last year’s mesmerizing and powerful debut album Kar Yağar, which was one of our 15 Favourite Albums of the Year, Derya Yıldırım & Grup Şimşek are back with new music. The trans-continental psych-pop quartet released last month a new single called ‘Deniz Dalgasiz Olmaz’, which translates as “The sea can’t exist without the waves”. Known for their transcendent mixture of influences and genres, from Anatolian roots music and 70’s jazz to early prog rock and funk, on the new track they “link past and future”, and continue “to take their sound to a new dimension”, as the press release describes.
‘Deniz Dalgasiz Olmaz’ comes with an accompanying video made by Max Morris-Doherty. Watch it below.
