Born out of the desire to think, create and play without boundaries or limitations, Oceans Of Noise unifies the excitement of amateur musicianship with the experience, matureness and serenity of established artists.
Oceans Of Noise was formed in 2015 around the talents of singer Sertab Erener, guitarist Emre Kula, bassist Eser Unsalan, keyboardist Ozan Yilmaz and drummer Alpar Lu.
Being at the high point of their individual careers and friends in private and professional life, the members started to get together in the studio to play their favorite cover songs for fun. Eventually, at the suggestion of guitarist Emre Kula, the band started to create their own original songs as a group.
Drawing their strength from the intuitive impulse that brought them together, Oceans Of Noise make passionate rock music that balances melodic intensity with blustering energy alongside their soprano singer’s emotive vocals.
Oceans Of Noise’s self-titled debut EP was produced by 6x Grammy and 1x Latin Grammy nominated producer, engineer and musician Joel Hamilton at Studio G in Brooklyn.
Production of the first EP finished in Summer 2017 and only a few weeks later, the band returned to the studio with Joel Hamilton to produce their new single “Finding White in Black” and the Turkish version “Ayla”, the soundtrack for the motion picture “Ayla – The Daughter of War”, Turkey’s Oscar nomination 2017 in the category “Best Foreign Movie”.
In May 2018, Oceans Of Noise recorded their 2nd EP “Not Safe” at Studio G again with Joel Hamilton. The EP contains 5 new songs with one of them being a cover version of Massive Attack’s “Teardrop” and was released in July 2018.
The band celebrated the release of their first EP with a launch showcase at London’s prestigious Omeara and is currently playing at national rock festivals as well as having opened at concerts of international artists in Turkey such as Joe Satriani, Liam Gallagher and Imagine Dragons.
