Massively Popular Turkish Band Mavi Sign to Warner Music


Mavi, one of the most popular bands in Turkey, whose sound fuses pure pop with electrifying rock, have signed a worldwide recording deal with Warner Music.  Their new song Sen Ve Yildiz - their first on Warner Music - is to be released in November, with a version in English to follow shortly after.

The band was founded earlier this year by 19-year-old Mavi Solman off the back of his enormous solo success, which had already seen him unleash trend-shifting songs including ‘Senin Uğruna’ (which spent 57 weeks in the charts), ‘Deniyorum, Ama’ (30 weeks), ‘Gözlerindeki Ay’ (57 weeks) and ‘Aşkım’ (17 weeks).  His solo music generated more than half a billion streams and he built up a loyal audience of more than three million monthly listeners on leading streaming platforms.

Now he has been joined by Arda on drums, Denizcan on bass and Oul on guitar to form Mavi.  The group have already won critical acclaim for their music which pays homage to the ‘80s legacy sounds and blends them with warm velvety analogue synths and grooves. 

The band have also already won fans across Turkey with their fiery live performances and electrifying sound.  They have been performing Mavi Solman’s solo hits in a new band arrangement, as well as unreleased new songs to get fan feedback.  The band has already signed up more than 2.4 million monthly listeners on their Spotify page alone.

Mavi are set to travel to London to record more new music.  The band are also planning to release three songs, performed in Turkish and English, in the coming months. 

Mavi say: “We’re super excited about the journey ahead.  Our music is simply good!  Borderless, seductive, and liberating.  We want to get under your skin, and for you to feel free and moved.  We want to conquer everyone and want to be conquered by the love of everyone.  In each step, we want to create and influence more.  We’re hungry like a wolf to make and to share more music and basically all we want is for YOU to crave for us in every turn.  Stay tuned!”

Gülce Ünal, General Manager, Warner Music Turkey, adds: “We’re ecstatic at joining forces with such a talented band, to have the privilege of sharing their remarkable work internationally and uplifting them to create more of their musical magic all around the world.  The road ahead of us is shining with borderless possibilities and we can’t wait to show the world what Turkey has been going insane for.”

Alfonso Perez-Soto, President, Emerging Markets, Warner Music, concludes: “When I first heard Mavi’s music I was blown away.  These guys convey genuine emotions through bold lyricism and extraordinary live performances.  They’ve already taken Turkey by storm and their upcoming English version of ‘Sen Ve Yıldız’ will help them take their electrifying sound to more fans around the world.”
