Brisbane is welcoming East Capri to the alternative scene, and the duo are making a huge first impression with the release of their new single Wake n Repeat. Wake n Repeat marks the first single and title track to their forthcoming debut EP, due for release Friday August 27.
Wake n Repeat made its radio debut on Triple M Hard N Heavy on Tuesday night before dropping their postmodern inspired video by Third Eye Visuals exclusively at Hysteria Mag yesterday. Guitarist Jackson Deasy highlights that “a lot of the [music video] imagery relates to your own mind holding you back.“
Vocalist Eden Cartwright continues, “There’s a vicious cycle that comes into play there, you’re too depressed to get out of bed, but then you feel guilty about not having accomplished anything with your day. It’s just wake and repeat. You get up and miss out on the world because of your fears and depression.”
Forming in regional Queensland, Eden Cartwright (vocals) and Jackson Deasy (guitar) make up East Capri, a product of shared musical interests and influences which in turn have built the foundations of the Brisbane duo. Taking inspiration from bands to the likes of Bring Me The Horizon, Twenty One Pilots, Slaves, Falling In Reverse and I Prevail, East Capri pool their collective influences together and endeavour to produce music with feeling and to create connection. Forthcoming EP ‘Wake n Repeat’ shares a delicate side to the band that has culminated in an honest and cathartic release.
“This record shows a deep side of tragedy and pain, and through the writing process we really grew a strong bond not only as a band but as lifelong friends” explains Cartwright. “Writing and creating was the biggest factor in helping us cope through some seriously tough and isolating times.“
The band take on a DIY approach to their music, with each track fully written and produced in house. Over the span of four years the trio have found their footing and are ready to unleash their carefully crafted collection of addictive melodies and infectious grooves.
East Capri strive to grow and evolve with each offering. Stay tuned for the next chapter. ‘Wake N Repeat’ EP will be out Friday August 27.
Single Wake N Repeat is now available on streaming services.
