Gaye Su Akyol is at the forefront of the new Istanbul scene. Her influences range from the Turkish chanteuse Selda Bağcan to Nick Cave, surf bands and psychedelia. In Gaye Su Akyol’s universe, the past becomes folded into the present and launched into the future. Hologram Ĭmparatorluğu is heady, powerfully intoxicating and beautifully dangerous. Gorgeous, cinematic and subversive. Past, present, future. Her music, her art.
