Now Playing: Far Caspian – 'Today'

Saturday, March 14, 2020

This week, Far Caspian, the project of Irish singer, songwriter and producer Joel Johnston, has returned with another captivating new single, this time sharing 'Today'. Released via Dance To The Radio, the track comes after an impressive twelve months of releases for Far Caspian, including EP The Heights and single 'July'.

The single came to life after Johnston was working on new music. When it wasn't working out, he decided to discard it and work on something else instead. 'Today' was inspired by a build-up of moments, Johnston said on the track:

"It’s a simple song about how I was feeling coming off tour - missing my friends, not feeling connected to anything or anyone apart from the boys in the band and spending too much time on my phone. A lot of the time on tour you mostly experience either massive waves of euphoria from playing and shaking loads of hands or serious boredom and mundanity from sitting in a van for 12 hours scrolling through Instagram. And then you end up crashing pretty hard once you get home and I was definitely in that mindset when I wrote this."
