Capital Cap It All With Panda Releases!!
3rd March 2009
Share: Artist Profile
Eastbournes bonniest exponents of huge-melodied big-lunged indiesynthpoprock glory, aka capital, are set to join the panda posse. First up comes the download-only single release of the mighty Ruin on April 6th, followed by the launch of a mini-album, aka a shortplayer, called Days And Nights Of Love And War on April 13th. The six-track affair is a veritable ball of enthusiastically nascent tunesmithery which bounces around somewhere between Tears For Fears and Keane while White Lies, U2, the Bunnymen and Robert Bob Smith all try to get a foot on it and calm everything down. The catalogue number is NONG 59CD. And the full press release whang out is below this announcement:

The Tracklisting:
1. 'RUIN' 2. 'BROKEN GLASS' 3. 'EARPHONES 4. 'HEY THERE' 5. 'PUBLIC SQUARE 6. 'EASIER TO LEAVE

The Vague Truth: capital live by the seaside. They consist of Nick Webb (vocals), Joel Roberts (keyboards / vocals), James Moir (bass), Mike Dawson (guitar) and Daniel Thorpe (drums). Together they make broodingly sensitive mini-epics painstakingly forged from the best bits of the early '80s, the coolest parts of the early 00s and some spare melodic shrapnel found lying around in the corner of the studio. Can they Fixx it? Yes they can.

'Days And Nights Of Love And War' is a snapshot of a new band merrily finding their musical feet, pure and simple. Recorded pretty much by capital themselves at home in Eastbourne on a budget of three pence and a bag of crisps this six-track introductory shortplayer doesn't actually include terrific debut single 'Bright Lights' (released on Label Fandango in August 2008), nor fearsomely fine live finale 'Someone', nor indeed future ace single-in-waiting 'Trespassing'.

What it does include however is a couple of heroic indiesynthrock anthems in the form of lead-off single 'Ruin' and 'Public Square', and a brace of weeping nuggets in 'Hey There' and 'Earphones' (itself some kind of distant cousin of 'Tiny Children' by Teardrop Explodes). Chuck in the sleek disco ball-spinning 'Broken Glass' and the massive pop enigma of 'Easier To Leave' and you have yourself one smart wee shortplaying release.

The capital boys have recently supported the likes of Spinto Band, iliketrains, Animal Kingdom, Bookhouse Boys and Airborne Toxic Event and are plotting more shows (such as the one below) which will no doubt be making an appearance over at www.myspace.com/capitalmyspace.com
