Akira’s Song of the Day: VIMES – UpStairs

Akira’s Song of the Day is a banging tune from VIMES from Cologne, combining electronic and authentic instrumentation, that’s what we love here at Akira. The song just keeps getting better with every listen and this video provides a perfect visual for the music. The Guardian recently mentioned them as one of the most influential groups on modern music in Germany – word?! AND they’re going on tour with Hot Chip in Mexico soon. This song and video reminds me of that ABSOLUTE BANGER by Moderat. Moderat are of course from Berlin, these bloody Germans are so cool and artistic aren’t they? Rammstein didn’t do Germany any favours, neither did Hitler… ANYWAY I can’t wait to go and play in Berlin and hang out with these cool kids.
