Turkish psych folk band Altin Gün are easy to fall in love with. Seeing them play at King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard’s Gizzfest 2018 in Australia, we immediately knew we had to sign them. The band, which hails from Amsterdam but comes from various backgrounds (Turkish, Indonesian, Dutch) create music that opens doors between traditional Turkish folk songs and psych.
On April 26, 2019, Altin Gün released their sophomore album Gece, which follows their 2017 acclaimed debut record On. With their new effort, the band continues to experiment, opening sonic portals previously unexplored between genres. The traditional folk songs Altin Gün has re-worked for Gece become nearly unrecognizable in their talented hands, as they deftly change time signatures, adding new sounds and layers to each track. The result is a sparkling album that is guaranteed to lift the mood of any room it is played in.
