AKASE give away War On Drugs cover ‘Under The Pressure’

By , Nov 6 2015

AKASE, the new-ish electronic pop project from Midland and Robbie Redway, show off another side of their record collection.

The duo, who are readying their debut album for !K7, have just given away their cover of ‘Under The Pressure’ by hazy indie rockers The War On Drugs, from their massive 2014 album Lost In The Dream.

“This song really struck a chord with us when it was released last year — upon first listen it has a real classic rock feel to it but below the surface is a psychedelic introspective quality that permeates the whole album,” AKASE explain. “The song has a feeling of relentless motion and is laden with intricate hooks and details, but when you dissect it it’s actually beautifully simple, which made adapting it a deeply rewarding process for us.”

Stream and download below. AKASE released their first single ‘Rust’ in summer.
