Akira - Akira: tour video blog
Bill Cummings 31/05/2009
We've been following the development of London based experimentalists Akira (Sarah, Joel and Gbenga) for quite some time now. Enjoying their skewed take on the world, their unique apocalyptic sample strewn, effect peddle dappled space rock, adding weight to their reputation as individual sound innovators.
Which is reaffirmed by the suprisingly glorious electronic heartbeats and crystal-clear star bursting vox of their new double A-sided single 'Together / Winning A Nuclear War', that's now avaliable from iTunes, Amazon MP3 and all other respectable online retailers through their own Orison label.
Akira kindly sent us a exclusive video blog of their recent April jaunt around some venues in the UK, enjoy a small window in their world below.
They are playing our first ever show outside of the UK soon too. The Wilsonic Festival in Slovakia asked to fly them out to share a bill that includes heavyweights like Moderat, Rustie, Hudson Mo and Rusko.
The next Akira show in London is on July 4th (Bangers + Mash at 93 Feet East).
