Massachusetts post-rock sextet CASPIAN will soon release their new album “On Circles” (January 24th via Triple Crown), their first new offering since acclaimed “Dust and Disquiet”, discussed exclusively for IDIOTEQ in this interview. After the recent premiere of theirt new instrumental track “Flowers Of Light”, the band is back with a new song called “Circles on Circles”, featuring vocals, which are quite a rare happening for CASPIAN.
Guitarist Philip Jamieson commented:
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. 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.
