Bio

The evolution of Brisbane based electronic duo Capre was organic in its inception, nurtured by lazy days spent experimenting with synths, guitars and kits. These preliminary sessions, full of brooding energy, paved the way for a slew of steady online releases, which quickly garnered the attention of a number of blogs (The Sick Pitch, Whono’s), broadcasts (SBS, HuffPost) and radio stations (Triple J, 4ZZZ). Positive feedback was received from a number of industry professionals. Dave Ruby Howe from Triple J dubbed their initial efforts as “intelligent beatmaking” with “some really lovely tones” and Morgan Ammar from The Sick Pitch noted the “…dreamy pads, subtle string arrangements and beautiful vocals.” Capre's debut EP, Cassette Mixte, dropping in June 2015, sees the duo continuing to draw inspiration from their electronic roots, while applying and embracing their love of hip-hop and rock. The result is a soulful blend of guitar haikus layered over crooning vocals, juxtaposed with provocatively rapped lyrics and progressive forms. Plug into a decent set of speakers, sit back and let Capre take you on a sonically vast expedition.

Capre seamlessly evoke dancing in a relaxing manner.- (Abbott, Tony. 2015)
