Track Of The Day: Ah! Kosmos – ‘Wide’ (feat. Özgür Yılmaz)

Atmospheric guitar, captivating percussion and hypnotic vocals melt together on Ah! Kosmos‘ new single ‘Wide’. The track is taken from her upcoming second album Beautiful Swamp, which is set for release on October 5th via Compost Records.

Born in Istanbul and now based in Berlin, Ah! Kosmos (aka Başak Günak) is a sound designer, producer and multi-instrumentalist. She sweeps listeners up in to a rapture with her intense soundscapes filled with rhythmic guitar melodies, and her collaboration with guitarist Özgür Yılmaz on ‘Wide’ is another stunning example of this.

Speaking about her upcoming album Beautiful Swamp, Ah! Kosmos explains: “Swamp as an image represents this album’s process. Sinking into the step that I’m taking, and taking the next move from that sunken space. The ground was pulling me in and this slowly let me find my sensibility, softness, flexibility and also power”. This flexibility and power has been developing since her 2015 debut record Bastards, and we can’t wait to see where it takes her sound next.
