Birthed from the underground music scene of bustling Istanbul, Ductape carries the torch of the seminal post-punk revolution. But they aren't just echoing their predecessors; they are pushing the genre into unexplored territories.
In a world where genres are increasingly becoming blurred, Ductape stands tall, unapologetically crafting a sound that challenges, captivates, and resonates. They are the sound of post-punk's beating heart, the echo of darkwave's melodic discourse, and the voice of gothic introspective narratives. Ductape is the sound of then, now, and what's to come. With deep, brooding bass lines that interweave with unruly guitar riffs and pathos-laden lyrics, Ductape's sound embodies the essence of post-punk — the raw energy, the rebellious spirit, and the unyielding desire to experiment. Simultaneously nostalgic and future-forward, their music commands the listener's attention from the first note to the last.
United by their shared passion for sonic exploration, the members of Ductape form a tight-knit unit that thrives on creative synergy. From the commanding vocals that convey raw emotion, to the intricate guitar work that weaves intricate webs of sound, the pulsating
basslines that anchor their sonic assault, and the relentless drums that drive the rhythm forward, each element intertwines to create their distinctive sonic tapestry.
Ductape has graced renowned stages and underground venues, igniting crowds with electrifying performances. Their music, like a sonic manifesto, resonates with those who crave authenticity and seek solace in the cathartic release of sound.
Alongside their powerful live shows, the duo has released influential albums, including “Labirent” and “Ruh”. These sonic creations embody their evolution as artists, capturing the rawness and urgency that define their post-punk spirit.
