a k u a

Montreal based songstress A K U A released her debut EP, Ones Company, earlier in the month and looks set to be propelled towards stardom. A large part of this steady rise can be attributed to her wonderfully crafted sound, a mixture of alternative soul, combining minimalist electro and elements of Jazz.

A real strength of A K U A’s it would seem is the remarkable balance she finds in conveying a forlorn vulnerablity and tension within a voice of such soft but distinctive tone. The EP’s standout track, “Gravity” gets the visual treatment and the grandeur of the track is matched by this accompanying video. Check it out below.
