Edinburgh via. London five-piece Jakil’s hazy new single Istanbul is one of the most intensely catchy tunes I’ve heard this year. Playing off a gloriously rich, groovy bass riff throughout, the band use repetition to their advantage, allowing the song’s insane hook to grow steadfast roots in your brain, as it continues to rotate in your head, even when you’ve stopped playing it out loud. With a nice mix of soul, pop, guitars and indie, Jakil’s silky sound is infinitely moorish. Istanbul will be released on September 28th via. Sticky Lips Music.
