Akua - Far Away (Prod. Golden Child)

Many of us are stuck in our current location - whether we are bounded by work, school, or money. This doesn't mean we can't fantasize about escaping our routines and it certainly hasn't stopped female vocalist Akua. The young artist recently released 'Far Away', a slow and well put together track produced by Golden Child.

Lyrics such as, "Take me away, I've been so sick of this town. Hold my hand and let's go down", describe Akua's lust of journeying far away. Tonally, the Milwaukee native's voice is comparable to TDE artist SZA - seductive and delicate. The airy and ambient track is held together by a slow and heavy bassline, accompanied by interesting percussion that wavers in and out throughout the song. What makes this song especially blissful is the many layers of melodies Akua sings throughout.

Her atmospheric R&B endeavors continue with her latest track 'The Other Side' featuring Genesis Renji. Allow yourself to step back and give Akua a good ear. You will not be disappointed.
