İstikrarlı Hayal Hakikattir

14. Gaye Su Akyol.jpg

The Istanbul singer’s third solo album fuses traditional Turkish melodies and forms with urgent elements of psychedelia, surf rock and grunge, underpinned by Akyol’s hypnotic vocal delivery. Our reviewer heard an ‘Istanbul iteration of The Fall, sandblasted by Hawkwind by way of Link Wray,’ given a global dimension by Akyol’s genre-defying vision. As a description, you can’t top that. A Top of the World in #143.
