We were looking for a track to suitably start off our week and this one landed just at the right time. We’re loving this from Leeds band Far Caspian. Taken from their forthcoming debut EP, Let’s Go Outside has a summery, stripped-back indie feel but with the pace and urgency to really grab your attention.
Their origins began with frontman Joel Johnston putting together his own lo-fi material during his university days, since adding Jof Cabedo (drums), Nath Sayers (lead guitar), and Alessio Scozzaro (bass) to the mix to create the band’s broader sound.
Johnston has only fairly recently moved to England from his native Ireland. This upheaval provides the basis of Let’s Go Outside’s themes. He explains: “Although it’s a pretty upbeat instrumental, the lyrics touch on depression and feeling far from something you could call home. 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.”
We’re feeling very confident this won’t be the last time we’ll be talking about these guys…
