Ekin Fil's ambient compositions sound like eerie, disintegrated remnants of a Cocteau Twins tune. Istanbul-based musician and composer Ekin Üzeltüzenci happily chooses full-on abstraction over song. Behind an icy fog of dripping reverb, her vocals hardly ever register beyond whispers and sighs, always just out of reach. In a way, Ekin Fil's music feels like a force relieving you from gravity's pull towards more ethereal realms.
