It’s no secret that we can’t get enough of Australian electronic music. One of the hottest in the game at the moment is Akouo, who has caught our attention once again with a highly affecting remix of #1 Dads’ recent single, Return To.
Falling somewhere between indie electronica and hip hop, Return To is both chill and blithely upbeat, and yet at the same time it also carries a subtle, underlying feeling of loss and yearning. A haunting, nostalgic piano sets the mood immediately, before an evocative vocal sample and wistful synths transport the listener on a groovy and futuristic trip. In layman’s terms, the song is incredible. Free download here.
