tracks | “CLOSE & APART,” an exclusive listen to hong kong acoustic duo THE TRANQUIL SUMMER SEA
Taking its name from the 90‘s movie The Tranquil Summer Sea (“那年夏天，寧靜的海”) by Takeshi Kitano’s, this male / female acoustic guitar duo started about four months ago, and has come like a warm summer breeze to the Hong Kong indie music scene.
A collaboration between the lead singer of longtime Hong Kong rock group Innisfallen Erik Piece and indie singer Karmen Cheung, the two play some of the most serene music in all of Hong Kong. Choosing to take inspiration from the most subtle of life’s pleasures – in an interview, lead singer Erik said that he finds inspiration during hot showers – their way of thinking is reflected in soft guitar arrangements and beautiful harmonies.
Since the band hasn’t had any official releases so far, we are proud to bring you all an exclusive track (titled “Close & Apart”) for your listening pleasure.
