Help us in welcoming the latest addition to Color Station, London-by-way-of-Sweden’s AKIINE. New music coming this February xx.
Press play into the intro for a stunning sonic landscape, a loud high-pitched flickering that screams “I’m here” just before melting into a layered downtempo gem in ‘Heartstrung.’ Created in complete privacy over a span of nearly a year by experimental producer, Shines, this self-titled EP is inherently personal, and equally unpredictable. The darkness is deep and yet you won’t finish this abbreviated journey without a laid-back summer listen. Warm synths, intuitive sound imaging and captured noises of the neighborhood via field recordings all help to create the absorbing soundscapes. Experience the music’s emotions and be encouraged—this journey is only the beginning.
There’s a concept called destabilization, where art images & sounds go to the heart first and then the brain, moving your emotions in a confused way before intellect helps to create order and reflect on things … Let’s lose ourselves together!
Color Station is a record label based in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, USA.
