LISTEN: Far Caspian - 'A Dream Of You'

Here's a dreamy mid-week treat from you from Leeds trio Far Caspian, who are back with A Dream of You - it's all sorts of lovely. The track follows recent single Conversations and gives us the second taster of their upcoming second EP The Heights, due for release this Summer. 2018 saw the release of hazy debut EP Between Days, with their self-proclaimed "melanjolly" style garnering press from the likes of DIY, The Line Of Best Fit and Dork and earning them a slot performing to a packed tent at Leeds Festival.

Frontman Joel Johnston writes of the new track that it was "the first song I wrote for this EP. It was inspired by some of our favourite synth pop bands of the 80s and gave us the idea to play with that sort of sound for the rest of the songs."

"It's mainly about feeling abandoned whether that's from a relationship or from friends or family and already knowing that feeling from previous experiences. The inspiration for the lyrics came from a place where I was thinking about my experiences as a kid. I’m the youngest of five boys and I was always seeking validation and wanted to be a part of the fun. I quickly got used to the feeling of being alone as each brother eventually moved away from home. It made me realise my expectation of others now that I’m older. The more I have conversations with people the more I realise everyone carries something from their childhood with them and at our age it’s about figured out whether it’s a good or bad thing."
