AKASE – Graspers

Harry Agius a.k.a Midland and Robbie Redway have been busy writing songs under their AKASE alias for a while now. Pronounced ‘A Case’, as in ‘a case in point’, apparently. Having received a helping hand from Ewan Pearson on production and with a handful of live shows already under their belt, their debut album ‘Graspers’ is finally out on !K7 Records.

The tunes are emotive and atmospheric, this meeting of two musical minds really is a solid fit. Redway’s vocal has got gravitas and the electronic soundscape throughout is an accessible one. Best heard live too, wethinks. If you’re in London town on 3rd March we’d highly recommend heading down to London Fields Brewery for their album launch party.

For a taster of the live show, check out this recent cover they did of The War On Drugs’ ‘Under Pressure’ for Sofar Sounds:

Bicep – Nova

Something a little deeper for you now:

Bicep have done !K7 Records big man Will Saul an absolute solid here, putting together ‘Nova’ as an exclusive contribution to his upcoming DJ Kicks compilation. It’s a slow burner, some sparse house vocals providing the only respite from a throbbing bassline and persistent percussion. That makes it sound bad, which it’s not. Out June 16th.

Close – Beam Me Up

Will Saul is soon to release his debut LP ‘Getting Closer’ under his Close alias on !K7 Records. ‘Beam Me Up’ is the lead single from this and features the vocals of Charlene Soraia (interestingly, she’s the gal who sang that cover of ‘Wherever You Will Go’ on the Twining’s ad). Scuba’s offered a helping hand on the production front and it proves to be the most mainstream sound to date for both him and the Aus Music head honcho. Thumping remix from George Fitzgerald too.
