İstikrarlı Hayal Hakikattir

14. Gaye Su Akyol.jpg

Born in Istanbul in 1985, Gaye Su Akyol has a degree in anthropology and a career as a successful painter behind her, but it’s as Turkey’s queen of dark, baroque Western rock that she commands our attention here. After cutting her teeth in various Turkish bands, she went solo in 2014 and her third album represents the finest realisation of her musical vision to date. A Top of the World in #143.
