Kandur's new ep out now
When the political climate in his home of Istanbul started to take drastic turns for the worse, Ilker Kandur decided to relocate himself to one of the western world’s most historically progressive locales, and the home of many of his musical influences, San Francisco.
Teaming up with Berkeley’s legendary Fantasy Studios to handle production duties, Kandur was partnered with Dawn Richardson (4 Non Blondes, Tracy Chapman) on the drums and the pair immediately bonded over classic rock influences. The resulting EP, aptly titled Fantasy, features four heavy-hitting-yet-melodic alternative rock tracks that span the breadth of their creator’s influences.
The music video for "Sail Away" was directed by Apo W Bazidi and filmed during the group's live performance at the Bottom of the Hill, a club that's chosen by Rolling Stone magazine (RS 813) as "the best place to hear live music in San Francisco".
