Capstan – ‘Seasonal Depression’

capstan 2

In preparation for Capstan’s release, Cultural Divide, in August, we will be streaming the first EP that got us hooked to them. Capstan brings out all the guns for everything they’ve ever released. Their relentless energy, hard-hitting lyrics, and ironically laid back attitudes are something most musicians wish they had. Don’t listen to this EP lightly, it can be a lot more emotionally taxing than you think. Look no further than “Drifter” to start your day off with a bang and “Can’t Lie Around Remembering Everything” to caress you into a slight depression when thinking about your past relationships.
