Video: A K U A – “One’s Company”


After releasing her debut EP last June, Montreal’s A K U A is back with a video to the title track, “One’s Company,” courtesy of Noisey. From the embalming room and chapel at Harlem’s Owens Funeral Home, she hops in a hearse cruising down Malcolm X Boulevard making her way to a cemetery in Queens.

After opening for Solange in Montreal around release, A K U A earned the spot as a back-up singer for her. She was soon on the road making her debut appearance with Solange at Pitchfork Music Festival and hitting cities across multiple continents.

If you are heading to Austin for SXSW, be sure to check out her performance on Thursday, March 13th at Maggie Mae’s Rooftop [8:00pm, presented by M for Montreal].
