Ankara-based screamo band plein de vie. have released their debut album ‘Koltuk Değneklerinden Kanatlar Yapmak’ through Mevzu Records, Khya Records, Le Blast Records, Pirkaf Records and i.corrupt.records.
plein de vie. is a Screamo / Post-Hardcore collective based in Ankara, Turkey. The band acts as a collaborative effort of 4 individuals and prefers to be perceived as one single entity, regardless of their identities. In their music, they attempt to reflect concepts such as loss, lack of belonging, and trying not to lose hope in a materialist society, while just trying to exist in a world where individuals can only be perceived by their status or monetary value.
The band traces the origin of their debut album “Koltuk Değneklerinden Kanatlar Yapmak” (ENG: “Making Wings From Crutches”) to the social isolation and emotional dissolution process that one of the members experienced, which lasted for about a year. After their formation, this emotional state was shared by the other band members as well, which led to the creation of this album with a collective effort. “Making Wings from Crutches” consists of 5 songs written about belonging, defeat, and a contradictory hope that is not lost despite everything.
