AKINA from FAKY Makes Solo Debut
AKINA, a member of "girls' union" group FAKY, digitally released her solo debut single "Touch" on November 27th.
AKINA, one-fifth of J-pop "girls’ union" group FAKY, recently made her solo debut with the release of the digital single Touch.
The single's title track - produced by Yaffle, who has worked with artists such as Fujii Kaze and iri - is a cover of a song by English singer-songwriter Shura. AKINA's version reconstructs the simple and beautiful atmosphere of the original but with an interpretation that's all her own, conveying with the personal reflection of a diary entry the ache of longing for a forbidden touch.
AKINA commented: “I’m looking forward to showing a much different side of me that you’ve never seen before. I’m so excited to create music to share with you. The good and the bad, my solo [project] will be 100% unfiltered emotions. Please look forward to what I have coming!”
AKINA was born to Japanese and American parents, experiencing diverse cultures during her childhood as her family moved between countries around the world. In 2015, she relocated to Japan to join FAKY, who made their major label debut when AKINA was just 15 years old.
