Ava Akira & Zand - Purgatory
Release Date: Out Now
According to the press blurb, Ava Akira is a Hyperemo rave girl from London and Zand is Ugly Pop star from Blackpool which is all well and good but is the song any good? 'Purgatory' certainly has a darkness to it, borne out of despair at the world full of fakery and attention seekers, but there's no ugliness just a sense of anxiety played out over a low bass hum and chilled beats. The main takeaway here is that the UK has produced two alt-pop artists with a taste for the macabre and a seduction technique that would make most hot under the collar and awkward in their seats. One for your late night slow jams playlist if you are up for something with a little bit of an edge in your music and, well, whatever else you're in to.
