Amsterdam-based AKA Block returns with his infectious new single ‘Miserable’. It is an enigmatic alt-R&B track, full of soulful vocals, seductive synths and vibrant percussion. The melodies are furtive, dancing around a groove-laden bed of bass. It is an interesting turn for AKA Block, who is continuing to take his unique sound to the next level.
Talking about ‘Miserable’, AKA Block says the release is a ‘trip down memory lane to a time when the bad things were still good and the good things were better. This is a mood
board of what it’s like to hold on to nostalgia filled memories whilst mistaking them for love. A collage of what it’s like to hopelessly search for a spark of passion in your partner’s eyes that has long gone to sleep.’ He says it makes him recall the ‘adventures of falling, being and falling out of love.’
