on genres like avangarde, artrock, post-punk, garage . They were making video collages 

from found footages on their very unique experimental audio matterial. They released a 

self-titled diy album in 2013. In 2016 this recording was released from Canadian avangard

record label Fuck Yr Body Up. All tracks in that album also has a visual track which 

was made in form of video montage method.

And than band changed its name into Reptilians from Andromeda in 2013 due to they just 

began to record music with lyrics which was writen by Aybike Celik Ozbey.

Reptilians, record and produce their music in a do it yourself attitude.

They're using vintage sound equipments on their recordings, 4 track tape recorders,

reel-to-reel tape recorders, analog guitar effect pedals, vintage microphones, old radios for 

noise producing, theremins and vintage drum machines and rhythm boxes.

So their unique sound can be describe as in terms of lo-fi, garage and nowave music.

They use Johnny the Tramp name as the drummer. A fictional character that they produce for their drum machine recordings.
