Johannesburg-based duo Academie share their latest single Monochrome.
Emerging out of the exacting urban milieu of Johannesburg, South Africa, Academie create music that is transfixing and transcendent.
Monochrome is Academie’s third single in a series of five that are the follow up to their 2016 EP, Volumes.
Capturing the yearning for real connection, Monochrome is hushed, textured and meditative modern pop music that draws immediate comparisons with St. Vincent, Beach House and
even the ethereal, enigmatic, contemplations of the Cocteau Twins.
The sense of humankind’s dislocation from one another is clearly reflected in Academie’s broader examination of twenty-first century living.
