Sofar Sounds have been delighting music lovers all across the globe for over 7 years now with their intimate gigs held in all manor of kooky and creative spaces. Always maintaining an emphasis on emerging talent, Sofar Sounds handed London based rapper AKS the opportunity to shine at one of their recent shows.
Born in the UK, AKS first crept onto our radar when we heard his '"Train Of Thought' EP which brims with timely social commentary and provoking themes. Taken from the same EP, AKS delivers 'The Dialogue (Talk To Me)' on the Sofar Sounds stage, but it's not as we know it. The stripped back version of the track amongst live instruments shines the spotlight on the lyrics and turns the track into an emotionally charged story that grips you for the full 6 minutes.
The entire performances oozes soul and authenticity and it's his willingness to address topics such as mental health and the fear of being alone that set him apart from other artists.
Watch the special performance for yourself below.
