I very rarely post guitar music on Indie UK but I decided to make this week an Istanbul week and share with you a few acts that I love from my hometown. So let’s start with the Away Days.

The Away Days are an indie/dream-pop number who have an impressive list of support slots including Wild Beasts, Savages, Portishead, Belle & Sebastian, Owen Pallet and Massive Attack. They have also been covered by the likes of NME, The Guardian, SPIN, Noisey, Clash and 6Music. They have a new EP scheduled for release on January 19th via Believe Digital which features the single ‘Best Rebellious.’

Frontman Oguzcan Ozen says, ”We’ve decided to lock ourselves in to the studio for at least 4-5 months. This is the first song came out at this period. Also encouraged us to do more. Looking forward to playing it live in our UK shows.”

If you like what you hear, make sure to catch one of their UK dates. I have seen them live a few times before and they do not disappoint. Enjoy…
