Saint Etienne comes for the new season
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily News
Salon İKSV opens its new season with British band Saint Etienne, which has had an enduring relationship with pop music. From the distinctly English sonic collages of their groundbreaking debut, “Foxbase Alpha,” through to the darker folk-inflected turns of “Tiger Bay” and even the glacial electronic landscapes of “Sound of Water,” the history of pop has clearly had a powerful impression on the trio of Pete Wiggs, Sarah Cracknell and Bob Stanley, with the result being that for this, their ninth studio album, “Words and Music,” they have assembled what constitutes a long-form aura essay explicitly exploring the themes and memories triggered by music which has run through their entire body of work. Standing tickets cost 45 Turkish Liras, while student tickets are 35 liras.
