Derya Yıldırım & Grup Şimşek link past and future with their exciting new single Deniz Dalgasız Olmaz, in which the trans-continental pop group inject the funky folk sound of 70's Anatolian music with a sci-fi touch.
Literally translated as « The sea can't exist without the waves », Deniz Dalgasız Olmaz is a folk song with a strong metaphoric meaning. In Grup Şimşek'sversion of the song, Derya Yıldırım's psychedelic tinted bağlama (Turkish lute) leads the track - around which they build an intricate yet light and dancy arrangement, where cool bass & drum grooves contrast with epic synths, vocal choir and e-drum polyrhythms.
Deniz Dalgasız Olmaz is a true sign of Derya Yıldırım & Grup Şimşek's intentions to take their sound to a new dimension, and to keep surprising us with their inventivity and freshness in the times to come.
