Far Caspian – The Last Remaining Light
Jetzt wird es interessant, denn Joel Johnston aka Far Caspian stellt heute nicht nur seine neue Single ‚The Last Remaining Light‘ vor, nein der Track ist auch gleichzeitig der Titelsong auf dem kommenden neuen Album. Das Herzstück sozusagen. Und der Titel hält, was er verspricht. Noch nie habe ich so einen runden Song von Far Caspian gehört.
Noch Bemerkenswerter ist allerdings die Geschichte hinter ‚The Last Remaining Light‘: “I had a nightmare that my mum passed away and when I woke up I felt terrible. It made me think of what life would be like if she wasn’t here and I wrote this song to symbolise how much she means to me and to capture the feeling of inevitability with all of our own mortality. The line ‘The Last Remaining Light’ represents the point in which you’re ready to move on and let go. After being diagnosed out of the blue with Crohn’s I’ve caught myself thinking about life and death more and Ive found myself writing about it in my songs more recently. It made me realise that although life may seem to be going one way, it can change very quickly. I don’t want to shine a light on death in a miserable way but as I learn to make peace with it myself, I hope that if I touch on it in my songs it can feel more like a natural rite of passage rather than something to fear.”
