Press Play: Kraków Loves Adana – ‘Love Isn’t Dead’

Following the release of their fifth studio album Darkest Dreams synth-pop duo Kraków Loves Adana have shared the video to “Love Isn’t Dead” – a moment full of nostalgia, melancholy and heartbreak. Amidst the blooming scenery of nature’s springtide, the visuals offer a bittersweet reminiscence of the movement on time and evanescence. Singer and producer Deniz Çiçek further explains the meaning behind the song: “At the brink of a break-up, people may tend to be torn between burning bridges and dwelling on past affections. This song is full of nostalgia, melancholy and heartbreak…. ‘Everything dies’”. Watch the self-directed and filmed video to “Love Isn’t Dead” below.

Kraków Loves Adana’s music stems from a place of introspection and escapism. Darkest Dreams, the band’s gloomy 2020 studio album, offers a closer look into a world where dreams and reality collide. With the new material Kraków Loves Adana give meaning to exploring and embracing your own darkness and giving in to your darkest fantasies and desires – even if it means to lose yourself in the process.

The synthesized arrangements paired with Deniz Çiçek’s contralto built an intriguing soundscape that draws from the singer’s own vivid dreams and nightmares. Recorded and produced over a span of two years by Çiçek in the duo’s own home studio in Hamburg, Germany, the ten songs offer a variety of guitar driven dream pop and dark wave with a melancholic edge.
