AikJ – PHA$E
Irish-Nigerian artist AikJ returns with his new three track EP. Speaking on the record he says, “It speaks from a perspective of someone trying to make sense of the new feeling of companionship. Being so accustomed to a life of self, it becomes a hard adjustment to cater to someone else’s needs. The urge to always be around that person and dependent on their energy to fuel yours, becomes foreign upon analysis. But never wanting this new experience to end.”
