Bubbling breathlessly beneath Istanbul’s musical underground is the fierce and thrilling Lalalar: a Turkish punk powerhouse.

Taking inspiration from the 80s, they offer a revitalising output that’s wholly original.Blending punk energy, dark electronics and Turkish instrumentation, they’ve carved out a unique niche within the Turkish musical landscape. The release of their highly anticipated debut, Bi Cinnete Baka, was a moment of celebration – and a cause to move your feet.

Live, it’s impossible to watch them and stand still. Spaghetti-western guitar, industrial-funk groove, and dark-humoured, serious vocals make for an unpredictable show – with only a handful of UK dates, it’s best to catch them while you can!
