Akurei follows on from the brilliant ‘Stockholm‘ with equally as melacholic alt-pop, ‘Hollow’.
Using the track as a tool to open up and share his honest and emotional side in an alluring delivery.
Speaking on ‘Hollow’, Akurei explains,
“‘Hollow’ is the last of the collection of songs I wrote abroad last year. I’d just left Europe and arrived in Bali to meet with some friends to work on a record together. Europe had been a confusing and emotionally intense time, whereas my time in Bali with friends provided a lot of clarity and peace. Lyrically, Hollow is me revisiting and reevaluating the faith I had when I was younger.”
Torn Palk‘s new single, ‘Juliana,’ is pure, sun-soaked bliss.
The musician, who remains anonmyous, drifts his music between lazy guitar riffs and seaside soundbites.
He describes the single, “Juliana’ is about a situation in which you feel fully connected to your surroundings. This can be a place, a person or memories of both. It’s a simple love song.”
Exciting new talent, Akurei shares his new single ‘Stockholm’.
Conjured up during his solo trip across Europe, ‘Stockholm’ was actually written on his phone in a hostel in Berlin, and covers the topic of loneliness and the longing for a connection to encounter while travelling alone.
Co-produced with Golden Vessel, the track effortlessly switches between hip-hop and pop worlds. Golden Vessel also filmed the stylist DIY video which can be viewed here.
Caymanian-born, London-based R&B newcomer Maeve shares the striking visuals for her new single ‘Eden’.
Directed by Black Dog Films‘ filmmaker Jade Jackman, choreographed by Liv Lockwood and styled by designer Asai (Dazed 100), the hallucinogenic and bestial video borders between what is real and what is not, conveying a sense of abandonment and isolation found in a toxic relationship.
The song is taken from her debut EP ‘Beasts’, out now.
Golden Vessel (aka Max Byrne) returns with ‘Moonstone’, featuring friends Elkkle and Akurei.
The upbeat track once again incorporates Byrne’s signature cross-genre style, and futuristic production.
‘Moonstone’ is inspired by the historical investigation of missing moon rocks from NASA trips into space on Apollo 11. Legend has it that the specimens once brought back to earth in 1969 were distributed across the world in the famous Goodwill Moon Rocks initiative, only to, nearly 30 years later, have mostly vanished or become untraceable.
