Guitarist Erin Burke-Moran guides us through Caspian’s forthcoming third album.
"A record that pushes the boundaries of post-rock to stratospheric new levels."
Where previous self-produced efforts impressed yet lacked a real sense of purpose, ‘Waking Season’ has the clockwork-like ethos of producer Matt Bayles (Isis, Minus The Bear) stamped all over it. Each song begins with the aim of arriving at a plain of intelligently-layered majesty, predominately succeeding in doing so. ‘Gone In Bloom And Bough’ utilises programmed drum sounds and gently looping guitars before cascading into a wall of overdrive and haunting vocals. But it is never done at the expense of melody, an aspect that permeates throughout the record: a record that pushes the boundaries of post-rock to stratospheric new levels.
