Hard rock dynamic duo Capital North have been busy in preparation fortheir debut EP, Sea To Sky, available tomorrow, March 2nd, 2018. The band made their official debut earlier this year with the release of their music video for “Glass Houses,” directed by Jesse Lynch. Ahead of the EP’s release, Capital North has partnered with Substream Magazine for an exclusive early listen of Sea To Sky, declaring it “a powerful and breathtaking release that you won’t be able to tear yourself away from.” The 6-track EP discusses relatable topics from personal struggles like health, love, and loss to the human condition. Additionally, the band has partnered with idobi Radio to premiere their newest music video, “Sea/Broken Vessel,” a track that came to be during a major health struggle in vocalist Jonathan Farrar’s life. On the track, the band shares:

The concept of the song was solidified after we watched Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie, and the track was initially named “Transferring Consciousness” as a nod to the film. Within the lyrics for “Broken Vessel,” listeners will find themes of rebirth, immortality, and the desire to shed one’s ailing physical body (broken vessel), but still retain one’s consciousness to essentially live forever. We hope that listeners will find comfort in this message and be able to apply these lyrics and emotions to their own lives in some way.” 

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.
