Hard rock dynamic duo Capital North,recently announced details for their debut EP, Sea To Sky, to be released March 2nd, 2018 and now available for pre-order here. The 6-track EP discusses relatable topics from personal struggles like health, love, and loss to the human condition. Today, the band has made their official debut, teaming up with New Noise Magazine to unveil the music video for their track, “Glass Houses,” directed by Jesse Lynch. Centered around human relationships with nature, as well as one another, “Glass Houses” tells the story of an individual realizing that although nothing is perfect in our world, or even our lives, we can be our own salvation if we focus on what is truly important. The band explains further:
“We initially wrote the track about the destruction of the natural world by humankind. However, the meaning of the song expanded in the studio to encompass the topic of relationships with friends, family, partners, and the Earth, as well as the mistakes that we as humans inevitably tend to make. It has become one of our favorite tracks on the album, and embodies so much of our ideals and principles – we are temporary, but this does not mean we should treat the Earth, or our personal relationships as though they are not.”
Capital North is a hard rock dynamic duo from Pasadena, CA, consisting of Jonathan Farrar (Guitar/Vocals) and Anthony Zichella (Vocals). Formed in the summer of 2016 after the disbanding of their former pop-punk/post-hardcore band, Lights In The Sky, the two came together to form a band that would best showcase who they are as musicians and thus, Capital North was born. After the split of LITS, Farrar packed his bag and traveled the world for a year on a mission of soul searching while Zichella graduated from culinary school and moved to Portland to pursue his passion as a chef, but both found their way back to one thing; music. Before long, the two began planning the direction of what would be Capital North from separate continents. While traveling in Iceland, Farrar visited a unique and beautiful town called Akureyri, better known as the ‘Capital of the North.’ Leaving a lasting impression on him, he realized it accurately described the duo’s current state of emotions as they strive to get back to what is important with “capital” being an integral place or feeling while “north” describes the direction in which to get there. Farrar shares, “Essentially, this name means getting back to what is important. That is what we have experienced time and time again – always straying, but always returning to music because it is such a vital aspect of our existence and being.”
As a band, Capital North has created a sound that is a drastic change from their former project and focuses on connecting with listeners through relatable lyrical themes and honest melodies. Recorded at The Pie Studios in Pasadena, the band’s debut EP, Sea To Sky, was engineered by Nels Jensen (Sigur Rós, Jamie Foxx) with tracking by Devyn June, and mixed/mastered by Bertrand and Eric Poncet (of Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!) at Alias Studio. The six-track EP is set to be released on March 2nd, 2018 and discusses real life experiences including struggles with health, relationships, life, and death. With the release of Sea To Sky, Capital North looks excitedly toward the future and the potential of making a monumental impact in the music scene and beyond. Sea To Sky is available for digital pre-order here with merch bundles here.
