Hear This: Far Caspian - Conversations
Share This Article:
Leeds trio Far Caspian release the dream-pop follow up to their debut EP Between Days.
Far Caspian, who emerged last year with their EP Between Days, channel vocals which are themselves both fitting and ironically, 'Far', intangible and distant. The vocals take a shoegaze stance upon a shadowy room in dim lighting, and a later instrumental bridge brings hauntingly angelic echoes.
Returning to the start of its conversation, the end is contained in itself by recoiling back to its starting metronome; the guitar, however, remains reverbing in the listeners' head. 'Conversations' is a misty dialogue between instruments and muted voices.
Listen to the new single 'Conversations', out now via Dance To The Radio.

Accompanying this is low pitch, finger-picked guitar riffs which embed themselves into the layers that lead up the chorus, supplemented with its higher, janglier riffs. 'Conversations' is a nod to 80s favourites like The Smiths and The Cure, whilst also sharing stylings with more contemporary works such as Softer Still and Indoor Pets; the latter of whom Far Caspian have played alongside on stage.
