Deena - Cupid

Deena - Cupid
Two years after the release of her debut album Lone Wolf, Brisbane-based Deena is stepping away from her acoustic-folk sound and with the help of a fully-fledged band behind her, Deena has dived head first into indie blues-rock.

With her forthcoming sophomore album Black Cat due for release early 2015, Deena has collaborated with Yanto Browning (Art of Sleeping, Jac Stone), Brendan O’Neill (Big Scary, Saskwatch) and Graham Ritchie (Holy Holy, Emma Louise), who have all lent their unique talents to chisel a darker tone without compromising Deena’s dulcet voice – a voice that transmits raw, intense emotion.

Self-styled and self-taught, independence is what sets Deena apart from the rest. Born in Japan to a Taiwanese mother and an Irish father, her musical influences are as eclectic as her cultural upbringing – Johnny Cash, KT Tunstall, Celine Dion and Jeff Buckley. At 16, Deena taught herself how to play a second-hand guitar bought at a garage sale before eventually graduating to the ukulele.

About this track...

‘Cupid’ is about knowing full well the danger of falling for a certain person but giving in to temptation anyway. Her voice beguiles listeners into an almost lullaby until demanding focus when the song breaks into a wail of high notes and grungy guitar. A song with cheek and soul.
