Sam Akpro Shares New Single ‘Chicago Town’

"You may find yourself on different sides of a mirror at one point or another."

Peckham artist Sam Akpro has shared new single, ‘Chicago Town’, via ANTI-.

‘Chicago Town’, co-produced with Shrink and Finn Billingham, diverges from the engineered propulsion of ‘Disposition‘ released earlier this year, merging languorous trip-hop stylings with edgy, psych-tinged detail. The moody offering explores the darker recesses of Akpro’s mind, exploring both his real-life experience in London and a dreamy, fictionalized rendering of Chicago.

Sam Akpro’s music is rooted in friendship and the South London community in which he was born and raised. The musician came of age on 2023 EP ‘Arrival, which traversed post-rock, jazz, dub, reggae and no-wave.

Akpro will perform a homecoming show at London’s Rally Festival on August 24th.
