Caspian – ‘Sad Heart of Mine’ stream

Ahead of their eagerly awaited new album ‘Dust and Disquiet’, available from Big Scary Monsters in September, Caspian have unveiled incredible new track ‘Sad Heart of Mine’. Very piano-driven to begin with, there is over a minute of subtle build-up as drums weave gently into the soundscape. There’s a cinematic quality to the song, drawing in influences like Nils Frahm and Ólafur Arnalds to make something really quite grand.

Around the one-and-a-half-minute mark, guitar reverbs are thrown in while the drums begin to crash with more purpose. A sweet and childlike quality is retained throughout as the song evokes the spirit of an edgier Lights & Motion mixed with the relentless creativity of Yndi Halda. The big ending does indeed come before it settles down into something more delicate to finish. A new Caspian album is a very exciting prospect.
