Australian artist Akurei has shared a preview of his forthcoming EP with his brand new single 'Stockholm'. The track features additional production by good friend and frequent collaborator Golden Vessel (Maxwell Byrne) — who also directed the track's music video. 

Mellow and contemplative, 'Stockholm' sees Akurei reflect on his travels through the use of lush beats and expressive lyrics. On the track, he said, "'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 connection you encounter while travelling alone.”
