Upadljivo drugačije - Aklea Neon s all-girl bendom Sound Doulas stvara moćan afrobeat zvuk uštekan u malo veću voltažu. U zoni brije s Helenom Ernoić na basu i Anom Kelemen na bubnjevima. Ova tomboy muza objavila je dugoočekivani debi Dođi na joji 22/02/2022. On je riba, ona jarac, a oboje jedan xxl sonični hug. Album je, početkom godine, dobio nominaciju za Porina u kategoriji najboljeg albuma elektroničke glazbe, a rasprodana su oba datuma njegove zagrebačke promocije. Aklea je širu javnost osvojila eko-himnom Zovi ju mama. Da ova putujuća glazbenica galopira u svim smjerovima pokazuje veliki b(l)unt nastupa uživo sve od Podgorice pa do Berlina.
Aklea I Dule nam divide I specijalnog gosta Tal Adriti:
Tal’s sound lies somewhere between Jose Gonzales, Nick Drake and Tash Sultana, with vocals influenced by Patrick Watson. His evocative lyrics are stripped and bare - detailing his struggles, obsessions, passions and fears. They give us a glimpse into what it means to lose yourself over and over, only to find yourself through music once more.
Tal Arditi's story could mention that he's a music prodigy, who completed his guitar studies by the tender age of 18. Or it could be about Tal packing his bags and moving to Berlin with nothing but a guitar. It could be a story about his debut album, released at age 18 and subsequently playing festivals and clubs all over Europe. And yet, all of this only scratches the surface of Tal Arditi's singular obsession with music and sound. Tal emerged with his first EP, "Cross Country" in 2022 and was signed to Swiss indie label, Mouthwatering Records (home of Black Sea Dahu and a host of other folk and rock acts).
