Aussie artist Akurei breaks down the various parts of our quarter midlife crisis into more digestible chunks of four groovy tracks in his new EP September. It’s a reflection of existentialism, self-growth, time, and soul-searching that every mid-20 to 30s Millennials can relate. Toying with lo-fi and indietronica styles, Akurei creates a moody atmosphere where he gives us a well-balanced diet of quiet despair and clingy hope. Enjoy:

September is a collection of songs I wrote abroad in September of last year, and a soundtrack to a quarter life crisis. All of the initial song writing was done over a few cities across Europe in Hostels, Airbnb’s and living rooms. The exciting thing for me was returning home with the songs and coming back to them and seeing them develop and grow as I pulled them apart and rebuilt them. I did a lot more production on this EP compared to August, with a little help from Maxwell (Golden Vessel) on Stockholm and Quarter Tank Full,” shared Akurei.

September is available now via all streaming platforms.
