This CD landed on my doorstep about 2 weeks ago and I've given it a few listens since then. It's a 5 track EP from a Turkish duo that has recently set up headquarters in Chicago. I normally enjoy rock music sung by females, so for the most part, I'm digging this mixed bag. Crunching guitars over synth loops; sounds a lot like Garbage, Blur, or Muse to these ears. Songwriter/instrumentalist/producer Demir Demirkan does a great job with mixing up timbres and has a few good hooks in him. I'm hearing only the very occasional Turkish influence; this is straight ahead electronic rock. For the most part, I like it but I'm left wondering if there's still a large market for this kind of music. According to their website, there's a full length LP on the way next year.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart
Tracks: Of these five, the better tracks are When I Need You Most and A New Me. I could do without the power ballad Hating You Loving You. The better ballad is the closer, Despite Ourselves.
