Sad Heart Of Mine
In their new record, Caspian is saying something. “We’re wide awake now,” we hear in the album’s dead center. This isn’t the first time Caspian has sung a line of discernible lyrics, but the clarity — in the tone and thematic sentiment of both the track and the whole record — has never demanded so much attention. There has always been a fluidity to the arcs in Caspian records, where words like story and narrative held a loftier, mythic place in the movement to each album. We’re invited to enter and exit on our own terms, using the music as a railing to help us wander the dark hallways of our mind.
