‘Sunken Tides’ is the debut song and video from Cape Town-based David East’s project Quintas. East, who is originally from Leeds but has lived in both Johannesburg and Cape Town over the years, is a filmmaker as well and has coupled his lovely debut song with a moody, atmospheric video that has him moving slowly through some of Cape Town’s best-looking locations.
Quintas’ falsetto rings of “You call but you don’t even answer” has a haunting quality, and the song’s plucky guitar is reminiscent of Foals on Holy Fire, managing to hold back where they might’ve exploded. It’s an auspicious and promising start, and we’re very happy to be debuting it. Check out the song and video below:
