LIFE IN VAIN EP, the second studio recording of Ulan is out now!

The Turkish post rock band that is formed by Volkan DiyarogluZiya Levent Aybay and Ozgur Oner,

after launching their first studio album “DUA TARLASI” by Sony Music Turkey in April 2015 is releasing a self produced EP “LIFE IN VAIN”, this time with lyrics entirely in English.

After their first album, the band has been considered one of the biggest revelations of Turkey’s rock music scene

and in this second 4 song studio recording, the band has a darker and harder sound with clear progressive / psychedelic rock and electronic influences.

The lyrics of this EP are powerful and generally political, taking on subjects such as religion, false democracy and facing the world today as an individual.

The EP will be available only on digital platforms.

LIFE IN VAIN’s first video “Dig In Your Mind” has directed by Volkan Diyaroglu. You can see it on Ulan’s Official Youtube Channel here.


LIFE IN VAIN has been recorded between Valencia (Spain) and Istanbul (Turkey) in the beginning of 2016.

All songs of this EP are written by Volkan Diyaroglu.
The drums were performed by Alex Manzano. Mixed and mastered by Paco  Morillas (Elefante Musice) and Enrique Soriano (Crossfade Mastering) in Valencia in 2016.
