When Ekin Fil moved from the centre of Istanbul to an island in the Sea of Marmara she found herself experiencing a very different kind of isolation. You get a sense of this on Maps, her whispered vocals find themselves alone in midst of a gentle whirl of ambient piano, organs and guitars.
Instanbul's Ekin Fil has been on soundtrack duties and created this unnerving and dread laden work for the film of the same name, and same style. Following historic approaches to such material, the album is at once both suffocating and spacious, a conflict of confusion that marries cinema and sound so well.
Turkey’s Ekin Fil plays quiet, introverted shoegazer-songwriter pieces with the kind of deep-isolation feeling that only the finest practitioners in this field can create (think Grouper). Being Near is a delicate, thickly-reverbed song suite that’ll sink your mind deep into a warm morass if you’ll let it. Released by The Helen Scarsdale Agency.
Turkish multi-instrumentalist Ekin Üzeltüzenci presents an intriguing EP for the always unpredictable London-based label Exotic Pylon. Distressed and echo-laden, Üzeltüzenci’s soundworld always seems liable to tip over into the downright inhospitable. Yet there’s something like a blackened pop heart beating under the opaque surfaces, drawing the listener in through the sonic fog.
