Acopia

18/09/2020

There’s no question in the remarkable quality of the musical outputs that Melbourne has to offer. Every now and then however, something truly special comes across your musical desk. For me, one of the most exciting projects to come of 2020 is Acopia. Acopia brings together three local Melbourne musicians Purient, Liluzu and Morgan Wright, commendable all in their individual endeavours, but together converge to showcase a contemporary incarnation of stripped back, emotional synth pop reminiscent of the 80s. Their debut EP ‘For You I Try’ is everything I love packaged in two neat little arrangements, warm yet melancholy and worthy of a tear or two. Acopia’s less is more approach to music will no doubt see them flourish into their bright future. I’m counting down the days until we can see Acopia take the stage live, but for now Lachie, Kate, and Morgan joined me for a chat and one hour guest mix, broadcast live on PBS Melbourne for Passing Notes episode 81.
