Akaba artist

The idea of the Swedish band Akaba was born from the ashes of two prominent indiebands, Pineforest Crunch and Reminder. At an abandoned shipyard outside of Stockholm amongst torn Mellotrons and stuttering Drummachines the idea of a small mobile musical unit was born. ├ůsa Carild and Tobias Ljungkvist and Mattias Olsson have toured extensively in Sweden playing everything from Thai restaurants to 600 seat venues (sometimes even in the same night!). They have also toured the US Westcoast creating a noticable buzz and built a new fanbase. They have since then also performed at Canadian Music Week (Toronto), CMJ (NY), The great Alternative Escape (Brighton, UK) and the Garage and O2 Academy(London). 1st of August Akaba is releasing its debut Album internationally.
