about

Mecnun’dan Beter Haldeyim (Radio Edit)

enkaz altı bir yerdeyim
kahpe dünya sırtımda
kah çürüyor kah sürünüyor ruhum
mecnun'dan beter haldeyim

azıcık ışık yok mu bana
ya da bir damla su
kaybetmek bi' ihtimal
vazgeçmek ölüm

mahşer yeri kursağım
yüzyıllardır mühürlü
kah yanıyor kah yakıyor sükut
mecnun'dan beter haldeyim


Way Worse Than Majnoon (Radio Edit)
 
I’m somewhere under the wreckage
with this bitch world on my back
my soul is either rotting or crawling
I’m way worse than majnoon
 
isn’t there a little light for me
or a drop of water
to lose is a maybe
to give up is the death
 
my gizzard is in an apocalypse
it’s been sealed for centuries
silence is either on fire or it sets you on fire
I’m way worse than Majnoon



Hata Benim Göbek Adım (7'' version)

tarih benim
ben talihin  
peşinde yaşlanmışız
birimiz gece
diğeri gündüz
kavuşmamız imkansız

kalsam n'olur
gitsem n'olur
kendime yabancıyım
tutsam yangın
bıraksam altın
hata benim göbek adım 

ne tamamım 
ne de yarım
boşluğa dolmaktayım 
her şeyim var gibi
hiçbir şey yok gibi
ağzımda tat kalmamış

şu koca dünyada 
hangi şehre kaçarsam kaçayım
orası yanlışlığın başkenti olur


Fault Is My Middle Name (7'' version)

history after me
me after the fortune
we have grown old
one of us, the night
the other is the day
uniting has no way
 
what if I stay
what if I go
a stranger to myself
if I hold, it’s a fire
if I let go, it’s gold
fault is my middle name
 
I’m neither full
I’m nor half
I’m filling in the void
as if I have it all
as if I have none
no taste in my mouth
 
in this big world
whichever city I may run away to
it becomes the capital of errors

about

Lalalar İstanbul, Turkey

Istanbul’s Lalalar remind you of your favorite 80’s cult show theme, and simultaneously sound like a delightful dumpster dive of spaghetti western-psychedelics, Anatolian funk, sampling and hazy electronics. The one constant: Lalalar is the type of band you want to move to with abandon. ... more
