Hear This: Far Caspian - The Place


Share This Article:

Up-and-coming Leeds outfit Far Caspian tease atmospheric pop sound with latest single 'The Place'.

A debut album and a debut performance at Leeds festival mean emerging Yorkshire indie hotshots Far Caspian are in for a busy month. Ahead of a jam-packed Autumn schedule, the three-piece has released a sneak cut in the form of 'The Place'; a hazy, summer-afternoon slow jam fit with airy harmonies and seeping drum beats.

Drawing on the influences of Grizzly Bear and Band of Horses, 'The Place' is unforcedly simple in its rhythmic arrangement, supported by progressive, layered guitar twangs. Joel Johnston's lead vocals float above, like an early Winter morning haze hanging atop a dew-dropped grass field. In a recent press release, the trio explained the new single's overarching theme: "The song itself is about overthinking things in social situations and feeling like you aren't contributing enough to conversation because you're feeling awkward". 

Relatable, down to earth and with an infectious songwriting hook, Far Caspian are firmly establishing themselves within the indie landscape. Catch their debut appearance at Leeds festival this coming weekend, as well as supporting Her's, Indoor Pets and whenyoung later in the Autumn. 

Listen to the new single 'The Place' now.
