New Color Station signee Akiine shows off her sharp and versatile abilities on "Destiny," a jittery mid-tempo exploration of menacing tones and hitting synths. Her adeptness in traversing the brooding soundscape shows a control that grabs hold of listeners, disallowing the chaos to impede in the way it should. Akiine manages to diminish the disorderliness with a mesmerizing vocal display, one that, with its understated whisper-like qualities, arrests full attention and admiration. Resulting is a fully-realized display of slick composition and performance.
We can expect a full-length LP come summer later this year, but for now you can catch Akiine March 3rd at London's Old Blue with Color Station label-mate Bewilderbeast. Listen to/download (only for the first week) "Destiny" below.
