AKUA – Them Spirits

Akua’s Them Spirits is an instant classic. This is an album you can listen to on repeat, all day. 
These seven tracks are the result of a journey through a very personal grief, losing her father months before embarking on a global tour singing backup vocals for Solange. The process this album tackles involve raw, messy emotion, and yet these songs bring us through to the other side unscathed and resonating with an uplifting frequency.

The mood of this release is established from the get-go with “Righteous Way,” a captivating and ethereal testament to Akua’s upbringing. Layering numerous vocal tracks on songs such as “Offering” and “My Body,” her dreamlike vocals take us to a place between worlds. Each track is perfectly placed, building a twisting narrative through soundscapes both dark and light. It’s hard to find a single imperfection with this album, which was both produced and written by Akua with musical contributions from Daniel Aged, Sam Wilkes and Mocky. Akua is a Canadian-Ghanain, producer, vocalist, writer, currently based in Los Angeles. You will find her joining Shy Girls on tour this spring.
