Akine’s latest single ‘Cheri‘ is a poignant and emotive track that explores the fear of failure and the loss of innocence that can come with taking wrong turns in life.
The 17-year-old singer delivers a raw and honest portrayal of a protagonist who runs away from what she knows, only to lose herself in a life of hedonism and addiction. Akine’s vocals feel dark and expressive and deliver exactly the feelings the lyrics create while capturing the helplessness of the lead character as she spirals further away from what she once was.
‘Cheri’ follows Akine’s debut single ‘Pray for the Prey‘, which garnered attention from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and numerous blogs. The Ukrainian-born artist brings a unique perspective to her music, examining topics such as organized religion and civil war. Despite her young age, Akine showcases a depth of maturity in her songwriting and a potent urgency in her vocals.
With ‘Cheri’, Akine once again proves to be a talented and authentic musician with a powerful message. The track is a must-listen for anyone who appreciates raw and honest music that speaks to the human experience.
