Introducing: turan

A self-professed ‘socially awkward’ character, it would be trite to suggest that rap is turan‘s way of enabling him to express his innermost feelings. But with this young artist, it’s that raw fire, as yet unabated by any major label posturing, that is so alluring about his music.

With influences stretching from Sade and Radiohead to Pink Floyd and Hans Zimmer, turan’s debut four track EP Persistence of Memory, named after a Salvador Dali painting, is the work of a precociously meticulous artist, who also had a hand in the visual direction for all five accompanying videos for the EP.

Persistence of Memory carries a heart-on-sleeve emotion not unlike to The Weeknd, crossed with the kind of introspective, solemn bars that Mike Skinner made his trademark, which strengthens his interest as an artist worth keeping an eye on through to 2015.
