Today, Caspar Leopard, the multi-talented, London based composer, producer and filmmaker releases ‘Gravity’ the final track from his hotly-anticipated debut EP entitled ‘Restoration’. Listen here
Speaking about the track Caspar said: “’Gravity’ is a love song at heart – whether you’re separated by a great distance or in the same room, it’s about feeling that unstoppable pull of attraction towards your lover. Life and love are never perfect, but when you find true ‘gravity’ with someone you must ride the ups and downs together and never let them go. It felt right ending the EP on this note.”
In keeping with Leopard’s previous releases ‘Expire Pt. I’ and ‘Son of The Morning’, the music continues to sit firmly beyond conformity. We hear the familiar delicious meld of electronics and cinematic atmospheres that are prevalent throughout the EP, but this time they’re driven by a bold distorted drum beat that offsets the more delicate strings and piano chords. The grittier production and dislocated vocals hint at the struggle we all go through in love and life, but the message is one celebrating the importance of love.
After winning ‘Best Score’ at the Global Lift-Off Film Awards in January 2018, Caspar continues to focus on his solo music. He enlisted producers Luke Smith (Clor, Depeche Mode, Foals) and Orlando Leopard – his brother (Arthur Beatrice, Florence & The Machine, Thurston Moore) to help realise his eponymous debut. Together, the three of them co-produced the EP at the Leopard brothers’ East London Studio, No.1 Baltic Place. A particularly prolific songwriting phase will see Caspar release new material throughout 2018.
