Haunting Gothic Rock From Istanbul – Rain To Rust – Flowers Of Doubt
Wesley Mayhem, October 31st 2019
I was lucky enough to receive this promo in my email inbox on a dark and gray Autumn morning. This is the type of expertly crafted gothic rock that gives inclement weather and depression an attractive patina.
According to a fan review on Bandcamp “Mert Yıldız, who plays almost everything here, attains an enviable tone on his excellent bass and guitar work; echoing greats like McGeoch and Gallup. His strong, vocals eschew theatrical effect for a straightforward power and integrity. The music could be said to straddle the line of demarcation between Post-Punk and the earliest flowerings of Goth, before it became a stylistic straitjacket.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself. I want to be in this band.
If you’re into The Cure, The Sisters of Mercy, The Comsat Angels, etc., this is for you.
