Boomkat Product Review:
Anatolian psych-pop sensations Derya Yıldırım & Grup Şimşek (pronounced ‘Shimshek’) are back with their second album DOST 1 (‘friend’), the first of a two part series. Fronted by singer and multi-instrumentalist Derya Yıldırım, the group is known for its contemporary takes on traditional Anatolian folk ballads whilst drawing on a heady mix of psychedelia, jazz and the omnivorous pop universe of the present day.
"The band once again cast a contemporary light on old Anatolian classics, as well as offering a selection of innovative original compositions. Led by Yıldırım’s vocals and bağlama (Turkish lute), the album features intricate yet dancey arrangements, where noodling bass and atmospheric organ chords collide to spectacular effect. “We always want to push our sounds further, and constantly evolve,” says Yıldırım."
