We want to make darkly beautiful music
— Istanbul hippodrome

 

Origins

A bit of background on us - We are both from the South of England.  We formed formally in 2015, though we are best friends from school and had played music together in the past.  Our past musical endeavours were pretty standard indie guitar stuff….which is probably why we never really took it very far.  When we decided to make music again, this time as Istanbul Hippodrome, we knew our abiding love of electronic music would be the catalyst for our sound.  Although we have been making music again since 2015, its only in the last 6 months that we have become outward facing with it and tried seriously to get it heard. We play Synths, guitars, programmed sequences in Ableton and assorted drum machines and percussion.
