Barber by day,
musician by night
Akid Amir is the embodiment of your Malay lover boy next door, who serenades with tunes of life and love. He bobs a lustrous afro and is often decked in 80s inspired wearables, dug from thrift stores. Debuting as a solo artist, he borrows from elements of Malay Soul, Indie and R&B, creating a genre-bending sound in his native tongue that is sincerely Akid.
Within Akid's sonic realm, the listener is entirely encapsulated within a bygone era dreamt up by distinctly colourful waves of synth and old school groove. Like unraveling a time capsule, as each song progresses, long forgotten memories of tattered letters, and faded film photographs, wrinkled with folds and creases, unfold one by one.
A lyrical effusion; his music reminds the listener of a time in life where innocence, simplicity, and love take center stage. Akid believes that music transcends language and hopes that his music can touch the souls of individuals, regardless of their race and background.
