Formed in 2016 by childhood friends, Istanbul Hippodrome are an unsigned duo from south of England who believe the world needs more darkness in its music. Their music is boldly cinematic and could be construed to be menacing in its nature, fused with a dark beauty that envelops its unsettling electronica and guitar based compositions.  

With a an eclectic list of influences ranging from the art of Francis Bacon and Willem De Kooning, philosophy of John Gray, the theatre of Artaud and Jarry, and the films of Eisenstein, the ‘No Way Home‘ EP is all about refusing to care about ones place in a world that has no meaning, yet enjoying everything it can offer.
