AKASE, the collaborative project between London-based DJ/producer Harry Agius, aka Midland, and singer-songwriter Robbie Redway, recently covered one of their favorite songs of the past year, “Under The Pressure” by Philadelphia indie rockers The War On Drugs, and decided to give it away for free download. Grab it below, and make sure to keep an eye out for the pair’s upcoming debut album for !K7, co-produced by Ewan Pearson, which will feature previously released singles”Rust” and “Murmur”.

“This song really struck a chord with us when it was released last year — upon first listen it has a real classic rock feel to it but below the surface is a psychedelic introspective quality that permeates the whole album. The song has a feeling of relentless motion and is laden with intricate hooks and details, but when you dissect it it’s actually beautifully simple, which made adapting it a deeply rewarding process for us.”
