Far Caspian has shared his new single, ‘July’.
Out now via Dance to the Radio Records, the track arrives alongside news of some live shows for next year, including a stop at new London venue, Lafayette.
Speaking about ‘July’, Joel Johnston says: “I had been demoing tracks before I went out on tour this Autumn and wasn’t happy with any of the ideas but then I came back and the demo project of ‘July’ was still open on my Mac so I started reworking it to what it is now.
“Originally it was like a bad rip off of ‘Time After Time’ by Cyndi Lauper so I ditched a lot of the synths and drum machines and replaced them with more acoustic sounds like classical guitar and piano. I’ve been listening to more pop music recently, new and old and I definitely have started to aspire to write songs that are a bit more focused on getting to the chorus and the payoff.
“The track itself is based around a situation I’ve been in a few time’s where I’m having a conversation with someone but I’m not actually really present because I’m in my head worrying about something else.”
