The Turkish darkwave project, ELZ AND THE CULT, just released “the Witching Hour”, a single from their forthcoming album PSYCHODRAMA.
Taking heavy influence from Bauhaus, Depeche Mode, the Cure and Marilyn Manson, the Istanbul-based artist narrates and tries to evoke what he’s personally experienced from the city’s underground nightlife. “The Witching Hour” tells the story of an individual who becomes one with the night and embraces their true self along with it.
“It is about bringing who you really are when the nighttime hits and the moon rises. The music goes up, the laughters fills the streets. All the best and the worst of us come alive. The video is contrast to this message. It is very claustrophobic and lonely — almost eerie in a feeling.”
