islandman – Popsicle Obstacle EP is out now.
Ahead of their European tour, Turkish electronic group islandman announce the release of the EP Popsicle Obstacle, out October 13 on Music For Dreams. The new material collected on the EP tracks a musical pathway from archaic folk traditions and regional acoustics through the electronic sequencer. From the spiritualist dream of primitive past to the glossy utopia of digital future.
The core members of Islandman are multi-instrumentalist & producer, Tolga Böyük and Eralp Güven (percussion) and Erdem Başer (guitars). Islandman have become known for their live performances, as anyone who has witnessed their live streams from Istanbul for the London Jazz Festival and Boiler Room can attest to.
The Popsicle Obstacle EP follows the group’s third album Godless Ceremony of 2021
and their 2022 EP Bahar. The dates of islandman’s upcoming European tour are
