Affet Robot

“All the catastrophes created by one's hand, will trap his own. When the day comes, it is foolish to seek forgiveness by the evils lacking mercy, created the same hand.”


Affet Robot (meaning Forgive Robot), an Istanbul based dark-synth pop music project of Eren Günsan released his debut album “Röntgen” in 2017. Shortly after the release, Affet Robot was supported by Red Bull, recording his new EP “Huzursuz Seyirler” at Red Bull Studios in Amsterdam. And the second studio album “Fiyasko” is self-released on the 26th of February 2021.

The dark-synth pop project gathers his influences from the obscure side of the 80’s. Analog synthesizers, drum machines, reverbed vocals, chorus laden 80’s iconic guitars and melancholic Turkish lyrics are what conjure Affet Robot.
 Combining the current understanding of new age with the 80’s new wave/synth-pop sound and creating something that puts the past and the present hand in hand; Affet Robot pursues a unique musical perspective both aurally and visually.
