London-based duo Kit Sebastian – Kit Martin and Merve Erdem – captivate their audiences with moments of pure pop bliss, timeless nostalgia and seductive complexity. Their unique sounds weave a psychedelic tapestry of global influences, vintage synths and melancholy élan, from the beaches of Bahia to the streets of Istanbul and Paris.
A joyous expression of vibrant grooves and sophisticated lyricism that transcends boundaries, borders and social-cultural preconceptions. Steeped in artistic references, from dusty records to world cinema, their new album Melodi represents a considered maturation of the psychedelic jazz-inflected sound that introduced Kit Sebastian to the world on debut album Mantra Moderne in 2019.
With touchstones that read like an education in international counter-culture – Anatolian rock, French New Wave and the finest UK jazz – the resulting album is the most complete, lush and orchestrated expression of Kit Sebastian’s worldly aesthetic to date. Their crafted soundscapes use an array of instruments: zithers, harpsichords, congas, bongos, bulbul tarang, and a mock-up choir on top of the synthesizers, balalaikas, organs, and saxophones.
