AP Track Review:
ACUA is a psyche indie rock band out of Germany and on the dynamically rick track Run, they push a lot of tone and flavors in dreamy arty ways. There is both an airiness to their sound but heaviness too. Those cool heavy parts, the twist on their guitar / bass andsynth sounds made me think of a more chill Death from Above 1979. ACUA let the sustain of their sonic downbeats breath, letting the space between sounds leave you floating and then explode with interesting effected guitar lines. In fact, every sound is cooly crafted. ACUA are Patrick (Guitar/vox), Caroline (drums) and Igor (Bass and Synths) and they are so adept at surprising you around every corner of this track pushing indie rock, a sort of jazz inspired fusion, post punk and such through art pop filters. Amazing.
THE FACTS AS WE KNOW THEM- PRESS NOTES:
