Akurei is an electronic singer-songwriter from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Not too long ago, he released a do-it-yourself music video for his “Stockholm” single.
Akurei – “Stockholm” music video
“‘Stockholm’ is the first of a few songs I wrote on a solo trip across Europe last year. The song came together around a recording I’d done on my phone of the guitar part before I left. I wrote most of this song while staying in a hostel in Berlin and would have to quickly put down vocal takes between roommates returning to the shared room I was in. Lyrically, it covers loneliness and the longing for a connection you encounter while traveling alone.” – Akurei
The audiovisual was filmed by Akurei’s good friend Max Byrne (Golden Vessel) in February during a recent trip to the United States.
The video stars Akurei performing against a variety of visually stimulating winter backdrops while wearing a big fury coat.

“I traveled and performed through the United States in February this year with Max (Golden Vessel). And we decided to film a music video with the camcorder he had brought along. We found the fur coat and pants in the same op shop in Boston. We wanted the video to feel a little self-deprecating and goofy.” – Akurei
‘Stockholm’ is the first single from Akurei’s upcoming second EP, which will be released later this year.
The likable tune contains a relatable storyline, pleasing vocals, and summery instrumentation scented with an indie-electro fragrance.
