Far Caspian - July

Accompanying their news of a UK tour this Spring, Far Caspian have today unveiled their latest single, July. Taking a step back form their all out guitar-heavy pop, the track's subdued melodies and softening approach shows another dynamic to their sound, one that continues to grow with each release. Speaking about the track, Joel goes on to explain in more detail: “I had been demoing tracks before I went out on tour this Autumn and wasn’t happy with any of the ideas but then I came back and the demo project of 'July' was still open on my Mac so I started reworking it to what it is now. Originally it was like a bad rip off of ‘Time after Time’ by Cyndi Lauper so I ditched a lot of the synths and drum machines and replaced them with more acoustic sounds like classical guitar and piano. I’ve been listening to more pop music recently, new and old and I definitely have started to aspire to write songs that are a bit more focused on getting to the chorus and the payoff. The track itself is based around a situation I’ve been in a few time’s where I’m having a conversation with someone but I’m not actually really present because I’m in my head worrying about something else.” Take a listen for yourselves below along with a rundown of their upcoming dates.
