Leeds quartet Far Caspian unveil new single “Blue,” the latest cut taken from their forthcoming debut EP Between Days, out via UK label Dance To The Radio. Following on from the majestic “Holding On,” which turned heads when it drifted into the online sphere’s consciousness, and following singles “Let’s Go Outside and The Place,“ “Blue” reaffirms the band’s knack for hazy, infectious dream-pop.
“Blue” tackles a more intimate theme, yet just as universal. “The track itself is about unrequited love, and being consumed by being so close to a person, yet knowing that your feelings wouldn’t be reciprocated” guitarrist Joel Johnston says, before revealing “My good pal Milhouse Van Houten was the main inspiration for the song.”
Far Caspian’s wistful sound calls to mind the likes of Local Natives, Real Estate, Grizzly Bear or Band of Horses.
