LISTEN: Far Caspian - 'Astoria'

I'm quickly realising (via the medium of writing blog posts) that I am very much a fan of a good old hazy pop track. Some of the best of the moment is coming from Leeds trio Far Caspian, with recent singles Conversations and A Dream of You providing perfect samples of this. They're back with brand new single Astoria, the final preview of their upcoming EP The Heights, which is due for release via Dance To The Radio on June 11th.

Discussing the new track, the band's frontman Joel Johnston describes it as "the song on the EP that kind of sums up the feeling we wanted to put across, embracing the good things in your life when things aren't so good." 

"Before we had started writing any of the songs I had already decided that there would be a track with this name. It's a town in Oregon where the Goonies was shot. The Goonies has been my favourite movie since I was no age, and I've always wished I lived in that neighbourhood - this is me trying to emulate what I heard in my head when I pictured the town."
