Turkish dream-pop band The Away Days mark their return to the UK with a new EP entitled This. Released via Believe Digital on 19th January 2015, the EP features new tracks ‘Calm Your Eyes’ and ‘Best Rebellious’ and acoustic versions of both songs.

Further developing their hazy, atmospheric sounds, the band have taken inspiration from India and the Far East to create washed out, hypnotic textures. The lush and epic new tracks signal a band further defining their sound and creating truly affecting music, both vibrant and tranquil.

In their native Turkey, The Away Days have shared stages with luminaries including Wild Beasts, Savages, Portishead, Belle & Sebastian, Owen Pallet and Massive Attack. Acclaimed by the likes of NME, SPIN, Noisey, BBC 6Music and many more, the band have been rising steadily before they release their debut full-length album in 2015.

The Away Days will return to the UK as part of a European tour. Catch the band on the following dates:

5th Dec: London, Old Blue Last, UK
7th Dec: London, Shacklewell Arms, UK
8th Dec: Brighton, Bleach w/ JAWS, UK
9th Dec:  London, Shacklewell Arms, UK
11th Dec: Bournemouth, Sixty Million Postcards, UK
13th Dec: Glimps Festival, Gent, Belgium

Praise for The Away Days:

“The sublime shoegaze riffage yearns for the days of Ride and Slowdive but still sounds like a product of 2014” NME

“Turkish shoegaze might not be a major phenomenon, but given the breadth of their talent,
it soon could be.” Guardian

“The Away Days project a shimmering, head-swaying spell” SPIN

“You were probably on the market for a new favorite indie band and what the fuck have those other guys done for you lately” Noisey

The chilled out with the searingly intense which powers The Away Days, taking them away from that well-worn shoegaze sound and into an area very much their own.Clash
