Far Caspian - Astoria

Capitalising on their soft and palatable sounds, Leeds-based outfit Far Caspian return with another mighty-fine sunshine inspired jam set in the form of new single Astoria. Taken from their new EP, The Heights, due out June 11th through Dance To The Radio, the track's about as laid back as they come with swirling synth patterns and breezy melodies to match. Discussing the new track, singer Joel Johnston explains: "’Astoria’ is the song on the EP that kind of sums up the feeling we wanted to put across, embracing the good things in your life when things aren’t so good. Before we had started writing any of the songs I had already decided that there would be a track with this name. It's a town in Oregon where the Goonies was shot. The Goonies has been my favourite movie since I was no age, and I've always wished I lived in that neighbourhood – this is me trying to emulate what I heard in my head when I pictured the town.  Me and Alessio were lying in the living room hungover when we wrote the chorus for the song. It came from nowhere and we just went with it." Listen below:
