Brisbane duo East Capri have released their third single, Danger To Myself, from upcoming EP ‘Wake n Repeat’ out Friday August 27.
It’s been a successful journey so far for the Brisbane newcomers, who debuted their alternative heavy sound in June with Wake n Repeat, the title track to their forthcoming EP produced and recorded by guitarist Jackson Deasy and mixed and mastered by Lance Prenc (Polaris, Alpha Wolf). Liberate came second and narrated the conflicting process of deciding to stick to a passion path or take the safe route curated by others. Danger To Myself follows the turmoil of unhealthy coping mechanisms adopted after the passing of a loved one and comes equipped with a music video by Third Eye Visuals.
Danger To Myself impressively found a home on Spotify’s New Music Friday AU & NZ this morning as well as Rock Out. after making its debut on triple j Short. Fast. Loud earlier in the week. Guitarist and songwriter Jackson Deasy explained to Maniacs that: “this song follows the year after Eden’s mother’s passing. Becoming self-aware of the destructive tendencies that were realised while coping with such a loss and how they effected the people around him.”
“Eden didn’t understand how damaging his coping mechanisms were becoming until after seeking help from his therapist after being urged by his brother. This created a lightbulb moment for Eden and helped him understand that he was in fact not okay despite thinking he was. A lot of the lyrics recite the intrusive thoughts and feelings built up when alone during this time.“
The duos debut EP has had a warm welcome so far, with two singles preceding Danger To Myself leading the way. Wake n Repeat was welcomed with a radio exclusive at Triple M Hard N Heavy before their postmodern inspired video by Third Eye Visuals premiered exclusively at Hysteria Mag. The single made its television debut on the Channel 7’s Friday Night Football on its day of release, both have had spins on triple j’s Short. Fast. Loud and have cracked tens of thousands of views on YouTube.
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.
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.“
East Capri strive to grow and evolve with each offering. Stay tuned for the next chapter. Danger To Myself, Liberate and Wake n Repeat are available everywhere.
