Aqua Talk biography
A Turkish rock band AQUA TALK were formed at the end of 2015 in Istanbul by Sarp OGUN (guitar, keyboards), Bugay AKYUZ (bass, voices), and Berkey KOKSAL (drums). Due to unsuccessful attempts at finding a keyboard player, guitarist Sarp took on the keyboards, while bass player Bugay took on the role of vocals. Shortly after the formation, the band put together a simple rehearsal studio and immediately began the writing and rehearsing sessions of what would shortly become bands first album "Whatever Tickles Your Mind". Due to financial restrictions, the music was recorded in the bands own rehearsal studio over a day, with vocals recorded in the producer's studio a couple days later. Having started the writing sessions in October 2016, the band is planning to release their second album around the summer of 2017. They say one of the aims of the band is to capture a diverse range of sounds.

3 stars Sounds like The Grateful Dead meets one of Turkish rock legends Bunalim, at least for me. AQUA TALK are a promising Turkish rock trio founded at the end of 2015 that would have a enthusiasm for playing progressive rock based upon Western Culture, and obviously sorta cultural fusion of East and West can be heard via their debut creation "Whatever Tickled Your Mind". I guess in Turkey might be cultural or religious bridges here and there (forgive me if I'm not correct) and their musical mixture is quite acceptable and enjoyable indeed, although there is not enough 'innovative' passion.

From the beginning of the first track "Dead Man's Dream" catchy folksy riffs like Dead in the mid 1970s are launched. Their soundscape could be called as pop / rock-based sound structural mixture methinks. Spacey psychedelia like Floyd, bluesy hard press like Bunalim ... various rock elements can be touched but basically of mainstream. Pop, delightful atmosphere are definitely around them. And simultaneously there are somehow tragic footprints. Wondering where they want to go whilst listening to this album ... and it's understandable they could share safe and sound all over the world, through such a fantastic opus. Do hope they will get much bigger in near future.

Thanks to dAmOxT7942 for the artist addition.
