New Jakuzi Track "Bir Düşmanım Var”

March 02, 2017

Following the announcement of the album 'Fantezi Müzik' and amazing feedback from international press, today Jakuzi, our synthpop heroes from Istanbul, return with a new video for their single "Bir Düşmanım Var", premiered via Crack Magazine in the UK - watch it below.

"Istanbul duo Jakuzi are rapidly outgrowing the Istanbul underground that nurtured them and their off-beam, synth pop. We get why – channeling Ariel Pink in a bath house or Bowie if he riffed on John Waters, not Stanley Kubrick, Kutay Soyocak (vocals) and Taner Yücel (bass) are bound to revise western preconceptions about Istanbul’s thriving musical scenes." - Crack Magazine

Yakuzi on "Bir Düşmanım Var": "The song is about inner demons and delusions of grandeur, about being unhappy and failing to clarify where this feeling comes from. We had this idea of doing a video in a typical barbershop in Istanbul and base it around a guy who is getting a shave and at the same time having pipe dreams, it's about someone who is settling a score with himself and his obsession with being successful.” Taner Yücel
