Akwareal describe their music as ‘street pop’ and I find this quite accurate. They create musical pieces that are candy for the soul and they’re doing so without losing their sound’s delicate urban veil, as magnificently showcased on their new song called “Paint This Town”.
The brain behind the collective of Akwareal is Mr. Art Wnorowski. Wes Restkess & Pugs Atoms are doing such a courteous job on painting the canvas of “Paint This Town” by offering their vocals to it. Seriously, a tremendous job by both. There’s a calmly uplifting vibe all over the production, perhaps something that Flume would produce on a slacking day. Lyric wise it’s about lifting and empowering and making it; overall this is a to-go tune to start your day. You hit play and conceivable colors are splashing all over the place.
Don’t over think it, this isn’t a song to over think but to over feel; head over to Akwareal’s Spotify page and have this song blasting on your speakers when you will ride the subway to work tomorrow morning. Listen to this urban sonic wonder here
