Not thirty candles on his birthday cake and yet Quentin Sauvé seems like he's lived multiple musical lives. After discovering punk and metal in his schoolboy days and officiating in a band before he even reached the teens, he became deeply embedded in underground DIY and activism. For years, he's toured internationally in a slew of hardcore bands, most notably as the bassist of the critically acclaimed French act Birds in Row.
Since 2011, he's toyed around with dark, acoustic offerings under various monikers, and is poised to release his first solo debut under his own name this coming February. This last Friday, we partnered with Revolver
Magazine to premiere his video for lead single, "Dead End", a spare, gorgeous song about loneliness and isolation. Propulsive acoustic guitar gives the single a sense of forward momentum, as the song builds with cymbal swells and harmonies join Sauvé's pained vocal.
