Acrylic – Awake

Screen Shot 2016-03-24 at 11.12.44Sometimes all you need is something to chill you out after a long day. Or before a long day. Or right in the middle of one. Try this beauty from Acrylic on for size as it’ll do more than a good job of plucking your head out of the dizzy city skylines and into a world where everything you touch in soft and people are all smiling – but it’s not creepy, honest.

Drift yourself into a location which feels as though it was constructed as an oil painting, rather than any distant relative of reality. This lot are on hand with a low-energy offering that packs in pocket of charisma alongside guitars set up surely just to lull you into a false sense of security. Even when the hits come they don’t interrupt your newfound calming state and something feels just so right about the way you find yourself getting swept up in this neatly organised ransacking of your mind.

Take five minutes to look out the window and stick this in your ears – it’ll feel like you’ve got a brand new head upon your shoulders.
