410 is the new-wave trio of Zafer Yerlikaya (Guitar / Vocals), Fırat Anıl (Bass / Vocals) and Berkan Çalışkan (Drums) from Beyoğlu in Turkey.

410 - new-wave from Turkey


Relatively newly out of the blocks, forming towards the tail end of last year, 410 is a band to get to know post-haste as their grumbling songs of protest, redolent of a country seemingly forever at war with itself within the various factions springing up in rapid succession.  410 create music that will resonate for all those from where-ever in the world who are fed-up with the old way of doing things and just want to see irrelevant festering bigotries sliced away like the gangrenous appendages they have become.

The dark menacing tones of the tracks weigh heavily reflecting of the crushing of opportunity as 410 deliver tightly compressed waves of sound that batter in to the audience.

Although not long in existence 410 are already establishing a loyal live performance following and their début five track EP Bağırdım Sokaklarda (available on bandcamp) deserves to enable them to discover a broader international audience – Turkish speaker or not – as the collection of protest material has immediate global relevance.

The track I have chosen to feature to introduce 410Çöp (Rubbish) – perhaps serves as a perfect song title for English speakers whether taken in translation or the immediate untranslated as read in English.
