Cuban/Irish singer-songwriter QBANAA (pronounced Cubana) has shared the video her debut single ‘Truth and Desire’.Filmed in gorgeous Dublin spots at Killiney Beach and the Botanic Gardens, the music video is simple yet visually aesthetic, translating the lust, mysteriousness and flirtatiousness in Qbanaa’s song. Outfits were styled by Eoin Gavin, who brought the ethereal visuals with light, simple and delicate pieces.
With a catchy bass line and soulful vocals ‘Truth and Desire’ mixes Qbanaa’s Spanish and English native tongues to create a flirty song celebrating the euphoria of re-discovering love after long periods of loneliness and includes choir-like sections resembling the honeymoon period of new lovers.
The debut single has already been featured on Eric Alper (who’s worked with Ringo Star, Bob Geldoff, Sinead O’Connor to name a few) and four Spotify editorial playlists; ‘A Breath of Fresh Eire’, ‘LED Lights’, ‘Fresh Finds UK and IE’ and ‘the Night Bus Edit’ and has been featured on Worldwide FM, Nialler 9, Hot Press and Golden Plec, to name a few.
Qbanaa will follow-up with single ‘Creative perfection’, produced and mixed by Dan Doherty in Darklands, who has worked with Fontaines, Damien Dempsey and Coolio (RIP)…but for now, watch the official video for ‘Truth and Desire’, directed by Niamh Bryson and shot by JP Quill…
