Nem Kaldi

A 1 track turkey single (5m 13s) — released December 16th 2016 on Catapulte Records

Brand new Anatolian Psych-Pop sensation ! Here's Grup Şimşek's first single, Nem Kaldı, available digitally only before the release of their 4-track Vinyl EP, due end of February / early March 2017.

Young singer / multi-instrumentist Derya Yıldırım teams up with fantastic drummer Greta Eacott (G-Bop Orchestra / One-Take records) and 3 quarters of Catapulte Records' Orchestre du Montplaisant (Antonin Voyant, Graham Mushnik, Andrea Piro).

With members originating from Turkey, Germany, France, Italy and Great Britain, Grup Şimşek (pronounce " Shimshek ") encapsulates the Outernational generation.

Written by legendary Aşık Mahzuni Şerif, Nem Kaldı is a groovy lament with killer melodyline, where saz and synth wave through a stream of wah-wah guitar arpeggios. The song is about a solitary character exiled in the mountains, poetically reflecting on society, solitude, life and death.

Grup Şimşek have already hit the stage in Germany, UK, France, Italy and Switzerland (F.K.A. Intercommunal Orchestra) and are planning some more... Anatolian invasion on its way !
