romantic dolls is an electronic based psychedelic retro soul band; established in Istanbul, 2009; by Emre Altan (composer – producer) and Ceyda Caba (vocals – lyrics-visuals) / (a.k.a. “Mr & Misfits”).
Between 2010 and 2013, “Mr and Misfits” worked with such good musicians in various recording sessions such as Sarp Keskiner, Kerim Gonencer and Resat Saral. After the release of the debut album “When The Day Is Over” on CD Baby, the band gave a series of concerts at the hippest clubs of Istanbul: Ghetto (2012), Nublu (2011), 60m2 (2011), Indigo (Urban Bug Lounge – 2012) and Topless (2012).
In 2012, “Mr & Misfits” recorded two more albums in different genres; which had both received good reviews from Ireland (Dynamik Records) and Germany (“Made In Turkey” Vol. 6 / Lola Records).
In 2015, “Mr & Misfits” repolished the line up by addition of Sarp Keskiner (electric guitar, harmonica, percussion, back vocals) and changed their name as romantic dolls. The live line up differs as Tayfun Bilgin (bass, back vocals) and Sedat Yalinkilic (drums) from Izmir / Orçun Baştürk (drums) and Vefa Karatay (bass) from Istanbul.
