Güner Künier has a minimalist style, deploying her voice over old school and industrial drums infused with lo-fi guitar and synthesizer sounds. Her debut album also invokes a psychedelic 70s vibe, although it's been adapted for the present day. You'll also find some synthwave tracks and Turkish lyrics in there. It features a great mix of genres which leads to a unique, emotional style. Her stunning live performances over the past few years have also sent strong and promising signals and she is still playing live a lot.
