Barakounta moved from Athens to London in 2015, the band is made up of Chloe Ann and Nikonn – who have been working on their debut album since arriving in the capital. Their music is emotive, capturing a raw emotion that is seemingly unfiltered. The melodies are stark, with brash electronic soundscapes providing sonic light and shade.
The debut single ‘Crime’ follows this path; with Chloe Ann musing on the notion of doing what you want, rather than what you’re told.
“The point of the song is that we got tired of people to telling us what to do, what to hear, what to see, what to wear. We love to do things in our way even it’s wrong.”
