Longy - Akecheta - Stereo Stickman

Longy Akecheta


An artist who has been on our radar for a couple of years now, captivating purely as a solo act with a voice and level of passion second to none, the UK’s own Longy is now backed by a full band, a superb producer, and an unstoppable intent to send waves crashing over the current musical landscape.

Akecheta is the brand new single, and it kicks in beautifully. From humble beginnings – quiet vocals, simple rhymes and a rising sense of keen anticipation – right through to the powerful, addictive drop to the hook, the single showcases the raw energy and might of classic rock, with just enough of that anthem-like, melodic embrace to let it really reach out for a broader audience.

Finding the perfect balance, getting the chemistry just right, with equal parts soul, skill, talent and professionalism, Akecheta speaks volumes on behalf of a natural connection to and love for the art-form. Simple yet effective, contrast-heavy songwriting is backed up brilliantly by an impressive and fully united band, and meanwhile – Longy’s vocals meander through the varying stages and changing energy levels with utter authenticity and ease.

Fantastic – lyrically intriguing, musically satisfying; absolutely a track worth experiencing at volume. Produced by Chris Hayden (ex-Florence & the machine drummer), mixed by Tommaso Colliva (Muse, Franz Ferdinand), Akecheta signals the hard-hitting and long-awaited return of the British rock band. Expect big things in 2020.
