Brand new Anatolian Psych-Pop sensation ! 4 heart-melting gems where Turkish Folk meets groove and electric action ! Young singer/multi-instrumentist Derya Y?ld?r?m 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 ?im?ek (pronounce « Shimshek ») encapsulates the Outernational generation. Their debut EP kicks off with legendary A??k Mahzuni ?erif's Nem Kald?, a groovy lament with killer melodyline, where saz and synth wave through a stream of wah-wah guitar arpeggios. Graham Mushnik-penned instrumental 3,2,2,3 is a 5/4 psychedelic mover lead by the acid sounds of the organ - a subtle tribute to the architects of Anatolian Rock Mo?ollar ? On side B, Derya delivers a splendid interpretation of Özdemir Erdo?an's song Gurbet. Gurbet is a Turkish word describing a particular form of homesickness: watching from afar as things turn bad in your homeland. Davet, a Grup ?im?ek composition, is a dancey, Saz-lead song likely to shake many dancefloors with emotion. The lyrics are drawn from a poem by Naz?m Hikmet, father of modern Turkish poetry. Grup ?im?ek 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 !
