Far Caspian is the project of singer, multi -instrumentalist and producer Joel Johnston. Choosing to record with a DIY approach – recording, playing and mixing everything himself.
Starting from a basement home studio in 2018, Far Caspian’s first two two EPs and album landed plays on BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music, Radio X, coverage from The Line of Best Fit, Clash and Dork, and numerous Spotify and YouTube playlists; which all helped gener ate a dedicated and growing and engaged fanbase across the world. Live, close friends join Joel to turn the project into a full band, resulting in driven and upbeat performances. This exciting sound was reflected in sold-out shows on the band’s first record tours in London, Leeds, Manchester, Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin.
Following quickly from 2021’s ‘Ways To Get Out’-sophomore album ‘Like You Were Here’ isn’t a follow up record but more so a departure into a different feel to his previous material.
Joel’s influences for the new record lean heavily towards the late 90’s/2000’s alternative scene with references to Autolux’s doubled guitars and expressive drumming, Sparklehorse mixed with The Radio Dept. vocal style and ‘Eternal sunshine of a spotless mind’ styled electronic elements.
Within this new sound brings expressive changes in mood. Songs like ‘Like You Were Here’ and ‘All The Same’ feel triumphant and filled with elation as they push forward into crescendo. Whilst album closer ‘First Warning Shot’ refrains from breaking too far out of its delicacy.
22º Halo is a band/recording project based in West Philadelphia.
