Far Caspian’s latest single is an infectious dreampop song born of upheaval.
Following on from the majestic Holding On, Far Caspian has decided to draw from a feeling of social disconnect in latest single Let’s Go Outside. It’s a song that, while born of a stressful and negative emotion, reaffirms the band’s knack for hazy, infectious dream-pop.
While Far Caspian have been based in Leeds since formation, frontman and guitarist Joel Johnston has only recently moved over to England from his native Ireland. This upheaval provides the basis of Let’s Go Outside’s themes.
“Although it’s a pretty upbeat instrumental, the lyrics touch on depression and feeling far from something you could call home,” he states. “The whole EP is loosely based on my experiences of moving to England and feeling a disconnect to living in a new city for the first time.”
