Akiva – Broken Ships

Akiva is a Bedfordshire (UK)-based band, comprising youth friends Malcolm Carter (guitar, vox), Rob Mercel (bass) and Dave Mercel (drums), alongside singer, guitarist and synth programmer Dave MacKenzie. 11 months ago, I wrote about their single Ammunition. A song with a strong message, just like any of this band’s tunes. “We’ve always believed music should stand for something and carry a message,” the band explain. “There’s a lot to shout about in the world today, and we’ve got a lot to say.”

Their new single is no exception to that rule. It’s nothing less than an angry takedown of the forces behind Brexit Britain. “Broken Ship is about the importance of consequences for actions, and how quickly things start to fall apart when these get lost,“ says MacKenzie, whose rhythmic lyricism is one of the ear-catching elements in this song. The video adds an eye-catching element to the already impressive song.
