AUDIO: Ako – “And You”

Ako may be one of the newest names on the Milwaukee music scene, but the band recently put out their debut album, “And You”, and they’re ready to make some noise around the city. With a mix of jangly, bright pop-rock, and some funkier elements spliced in, “And You” sounds far beyond a debut project. Frontwoman Gabby Powell can hold her own from style to style, but really gets to showcase her range on ballad “Colorado”. There’s elements of many different acts in their sound. The band cites Fleetwood Mac as an influence, which is audible, but there are also elements of contemporary bands like Best Coast and as well, creating an interesting dynamic.
