Afrakite ~ Grown Apart


Who is AFRAKITE?  He is Mat Afrakite! An intriguing singer/songwriter from Montreal, Canada.

My first impression of “Grown Apart” :  A gentle acoustically driven track with sweeping vocal harmonies and soothing melodies that allow me to escape into my own thoughts!

My take : AFRAKITE is a Canadian artist I stumbled across today and I am really glad I did.  Using the beautiful simplicity behind the soft strumming of a guitar, little splashes of piano, and the hypnotic drawing power of an absorbing vocal, debut track “Grown Apart” calmly pulls me into my own head.  Where I can get lost in whatever memory or whichever emotion that naturally comes to mind.  It’s a song I can sit back and unwind to.  Reflecting on myself as a person and the decisions I have yet to make as I try to maneuver through this crazy world.  Gorgeously blending a folk rock style with a gentle touch of soul, “Grown Apart” feels introspectively reassuring in the best ways.  Building to an almost euphoric like point where I know everything will always be okay!

TMH RATING: 7.4/10 Very Good!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
