The Aikiu's "Pieces of Gold" blew my heart and mind wide open, bringing joy and sunshine to what was otherwise a droll day at the office. I am new to the Aikiu party, but from what I've read it is the brainchild of lead vocalist Alex Aikiu, who has teamed up with Julien Vichnievsky (keyboards) and BarnabÃ© Nuytten (bass) to storm my soul's castle with their French pop ways.
Be sure to check out The Aikiu's SoundCloud for even more musical goodness.
On a side note, big shout out to the wonderful folks over at La.Ga.Sta. for introducing me to The Aikiu.
