The Away Days Short Info

“The sublime shoegaze riffage of ‘Your Colour’ yearns for the days of Ride and Slowdive, but still sounds like a product of 2014”
-NME Magazine

“Turkish shoegaze might not be a major phenomenon, but given the breadth of their talent, it soon could be.”
-Guardian

“New cut 'Your Colour' matches a blissful, soaring sonic sweep to songwriting with a real dynamism. It's this dichotomy of the physical with the cerebral, the chilled out with the searingly intense which powers The Away Days, taking them away from that well-worn shoegaze sound and into an area very much their own.”
-Clash

''The Away Days project a shimmering, head-swaying spell with lax energy, punchy drums, and lead singer Oguz Can Ozen's affected, distant vocals.''
-SPIN

‘’The dream-pop band is bringing back 2006 Brooklyn by way of Istanbul.’‘
-NOISEY

The Away Days are something of a cultural and musical first in their home town of Istanbul, Turkey: a dream pop indie band. A series of singles has led to plaudits raining on them from international institutions such as The Guardian, Noisey, SPIN, Clash, The Independent, Red Bull and now they became as an official artists of Fender brand. Since forming, they have supported big acts like Portishead, Massive Attack and Belle & Sebastian, as well as performing internationally at SXSW and more. In their native Turkey they continue to establish the foundation for a truly independent music scene whilst internationally NPR, BBC 6 Music and the influential station KEXP keep spinning their songs. The band is ambitious, focused, and destined to push their music to the largest platforms as much as possible with their new single called ''World Horizon'' from their debut album.
