Caspian: Circles on Circles

The second offering off On Circles, the upcoming fifth album by post rock stalwarts, Caspian, is Circles on Circles, a folk-bent piece with vocals from the band's co-founder and guitarist, Philip Jamieson.

"I can’t say that taking pen to paper and opening up my voice for the first time in 15 years was the moment of total catharsis that I was looking for when writing this song during a bout of isolation and especially rough depression over the holidays of 2018," explains Jamieson. "I did discover however that the decision to keep going anyways and move through the swirling circles of gray is more often than not a softer, more gentle and ultimately tender acknowledgment than I was always led to believe. What we did musically for this song is an ode to that realization and felt like the appropriate closing statement for a record that tried its hardest to cover a familiar spectrum of emotions, including endings, which can be gentle too."

On Circles is promised to be the most organic and down to earth record in the experienced band's trail thus far, and to all appearances that seems very true, as the band sounds to be steering off the usual post rock truisms and extraneous over-complications.

Produced by Will Yip, On Circles arrives January 24th, 2020 via Triple Crown Records.
