New Subways on the Sun Album "Capsize" Available Now
Subways on the Sun's new album Capsize is available now on limited edition vinyl and at digital outlets everywhere! Get it here. Capsize is a collection of songs which showcases a fresh artistic trajectory, and follows our collective struggle to accept the passage of time and identify the voices in our lives that are worth listening to.
It’s immediately evident as anthemic opener "Just To Be With You" channels the heart racing spirit of Muse, with a riff-heavy synth-forward energy that rips through the whole record. Each song is a unique statement, drawing fluidly from each member’s influences. This comes across clearly in the Mew-inspired "Tongues," combining jangly telecaster riffs and dirty-as-hell basslines. Remnants of early Jimmy Eat World shine through both on the album’s title track, "Capsize," and "Time’s Not Long," while "I’m an Island" features lush textures and ethereal vocals akin to The Cure or Death Cab for Cutie. The longing for time to connect and create before our story is over flows through us all. Capsize invites us to embrace that reality, and discover our own ways to stay afloat.
