Akiko Haruna - Delusions
Where To Now? Records presents the debut release from Akiko Haruna. with cacophonic shuffling over scapes of percussive damage and driven groove, Akiko tells a story of healing from societal tropes and poisonous relationships, ending the album with an exhale to calm and reflection. Akiko’s dance background influences her approach to the melodic detail and storytelling of Delusions. With rapidly morphing states, sweeping fluttering bass, her sound isolates the listener to the subtle presence of relief and release. Song, ‘Hetero’ explores how society subconsciously places hetero-idealogies and labels on day to day activities. The concept of hyperreality is sonically and continuously explored throughout Delusions providing the listener with forward thinking dance music.
