Gevende has shared “Vertigo,” the first single and closing track from their upcoming third album Kırınardı (out worldwide February 17). This newest release arrives during turbulent times in Gevende’s native Turkey; even against chaotic tides, the band’s fusion of post-rock, jazz, and psychedelia has made it a resilient treasure to audiences everywhere for just over a decade now.
The frantic chord progressions, aggressive drums, and heavy distortion of Gevende’s music have transcended borders both geographical and cultural. In addition to making its mark on Turkey’s music scene, Gevende has found fans in countries all over the world. Previous albums Ev (2006) and Sen Balık Değilsin Ki (2011) have taken the band to Greece, France, the UK, and even Iraq.
Gevende is composed of Ahmet Kenan Bilgiç, Okan Kaya, Gökçe Gürçay, Ömer Öztüyen, and Serkan Emre Çiftçi. The band soundtracked the 2014 computer game Monochroma, which was later released for Xbox One in 2016. Gevende released a live album, Live at St. Antuan, shortly after creating the Monochroma OST.
