BIMM Institute London graduate Selin is an Istanbul-born and UK-raised artist. She recently signed with Warner Music Records and is known for successfully combining her international heritage in her music.
Whilst studying, Selin completely immersed herself in the musical world – studying music, writing her own music, performing sets, recording songs, self-releasing records, and collaborating with other musicians and producers. Her ability to become successful as a self-managed musician allowed her to open for artists like Donna Missal and perform at venues like the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London.
Her bilingual project, Gidip Gel, was written during her 10-day quarantine in London. The English version ‘Give and Take’ was released soon after. A few months later, Selin released ‘Asi’ with an accompanying music video showcasing her natural acting and dancing skills. Selin just finished a stadium tour around Turkey, performing alongside Sertab Erener, one of Turkey’s most prestigious musicians.
Written by Selin with Gil Lewis (Blithe, BEKA, Aleyna Tilki) and Micky Blue (Tiësto, TWICE, TaeYeon), ‘Cool’ is a slow-burning, alt-pop number that faces the problem and ensuing emotional chaos of trying to remain on good terms with an ex. Expertly crafted pop hooks and Selin’s honeyed vocals help deliver the personal lyrics with complete emotional capacity, backed up by full-bodied drums and distinctively catchy guitar riffs for a sensational pop-rock experience.
