Gaye Su Akyol – İstikrarlı Hayal Hakikattir [Glitterbeat Records; October 2018]
Growing up on Anatolian pop and rock, she takes these genres along with her interest in psychedelic, surf, post-punk and electronic sounds to present İstikrarlı Hayal Hakikattir, her third album which was released on 26th October by Glitterbeat Records.
The album’s title translates as “Consistent Fantasy is Reality”. In a world that is becoming increasingly conservatised, Akyol wants us to appreciate imagination as a gift we can use to liberate ourselves in our personal and political lives. Her diverse musical influences, beautifully poetic language and delicate vocal phrasing let you glide between her stories with ease.
