A deeply personal introspection, Sio and Atmos Blaq deliver ‘Abandonment Issues’, an emotive and captivating offering of Afro-tech brilliance. Embracing her vulnerableness, Johannesburg-based storyteller and singer-songwriter Sio explores the common denominator of her dilemmas and finds herself at the heart of them. Teaming up with Soweto native Atmos Blaq, following a deep connection to his 2022 record ‘Dear Old Man’, ‘Abandonment Issues’ presents the very best of both artists’ musical prowess. Immersing listeners in their thoughts, this collaborative EP brings you two hauntingly striking productions from two of South Africa’s most exciting artists.
