CHOON OF THE DAY: "PARANORMAL ACTIVITY" - Akiine
"Destiny" - Akiine's previous single stole my heart completely and immediately when I discovered it first back in May. Now the enigmatic Swedish songstress announces the release of "Neptune" EP (out via Color Station 30th October) which promises to be a truly fascinating journey through electronic soul, future R&B and the less explored darker corners of synth-pop. "Paranormal Activity" accentuates Akiine's unique potential as a startlingly mature vocalist, for a young dame of music like herself, and a classy songwriter. The song beguiles with its delicate array of bleeps, micro-beats and sonic ripples. It's like an imaginary Lali Puna collaboration with Björk around her "Vespertine" era... Subtle, alluring and hauntingly beautiful.
