Istikrali Hayal Hakikattir
With the release of her first international album “Hologram Imparatorlugu” (2016), Gaye Su Akyol established herself as one of Turkey’s most compelling young voices and most exhilarating sonic explorers. Her work as a singer-songwriter, producer and audio-visual conceptualist, navigates in the storied pasts, the hyper-connected present and the undescripted future.
Growing up in cosmopolitan Istanbul listening to Anatolian music icon Selda Bagcan and Kurt Cobain inequal measures, Gaye Su Akyol skipped right over the Oriental-Occidental paradigmatic clichés. The new album ”Istikrali Hayal Hakikattir” which translates as ”Consistent Fantasy Is Reality” deeply poetic album of personalized politics ; an album that digs into the heart of our contentious, inexplicable contemporary eperience. Never blinking, always dreaming, never giving up.
