ENGIN, that are gripping rhythms and honest lyrics. Via the ears directly into the heart and then into the legs – danceable, rousing, captivating.
German-Turkish Indie-Rock, that might sound weird at first. It is! But in the best sense. ENGIN’s music is at the same time logical consequence and frighteningly revolutionary. From the heart of the Baden province comes an unprecedented fusion of the two musical nationalities, away from Urban. Pulsating, like the metropolis Istanbul, and in the same breath socio-critical, without raising the warning finger.
With this unique symbiosis of psychedelic instrumentals and gripping lyrics Engin Devekiran (vocals + guitar), David Knevels (bass) and Jonas Stiegler (drums) chain their listeners to the speakers.
Somewhere between message and danceability, that’s where ENGIN’s music lies. On their songs they talk about identity crises, loneliness, consumption, love and social grievances. Well, if nothing else!
