Kit Sebastian – Faust

Kit Sebastian, known for their unique fusion of Anatolian Psychedelia, Brazilian Tropicalia, 60s European pop, and American jazz, have signed with Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label and released a new single, “Faust.” The London-based duo, comprising K. Martin and Merve Erdem, has already garnered acclaim for their two albums on Mr. Bongo, including the celebrated debut “Mantra Moderne.”

“Faust” is a rich tapestry of global sounds, featuring Turkish microtones, jazz rhythms, vintage electronic tones, and bossa nova guitar textures. This track marks their first use of the bağlama, an instrument dear to their hearts. The song, inspired by French and Quebec artists like Louise de Forestier and Franck Dervieux, tells a Faustian tale of ambition, greed, and ultimate downfall.

The accompanying performance video, directed by Jack & Mars, visually complements the intricate soundscape of “Faust.” Kit Sebastian’s music is a journey through diverse influences, creating a seamless blend of past and present, resonating with fans of Khruangbin, Broadcast, and Serge Gainsbourg.

“It’s an honor for us to sign to Brainfeeder and be among so many great artists,” says the duo. Their distinctive sound, woven from a vast array of instruments including zithers, harpsichords, congas, and saxophones, evokes a borderless musical experience.
