Far Caspian, SOMOH – Our Past Lives
Far Caspian is Irish multi-instrumentalist and producer Joel Johnston. Living in the rural area of Fermanagh he keeps a DIY approach, recording, playing and mixing everything himself and his debut album Ways to Get Out is the definition of easy listening. Joel explains “Ways to get out of a small town, ways to get out of a relationship, ways to get out of your own head. The Album as a whole is about the things I came across in my twenties, but could be applied to any transitional period in life: depression and anxiety, tired relationships, feeling stuck within a scenario and place, wishing things were easy like childhood, rejecting your identity and becoming someone else.” The soft vocals accompanied by harmonic melodies and chiming guitars make for an album that is soothing & heartfelt.
