Alt-rock duo Capital North is back with “Envision”

Progressive alt-rock duo Capital North has shared their new single, the cathartic and brutally honest “Envision”. The track is a story about being hopeless, on the verge of full collapse, and how a photo from 80 years ago could bring comfort today.

I wrote the song when I was in a very dark place in my life, probably the most depressed I have ever been,” says guitarist/vocalist Jonathan Farrar. “I would wake up and feel like I was living in a nightmare. I found solace in my dreams, and oddly enough, I would see beautiful things in my dreams. I would see myself being happy, and how easy it was, but when I woke up, it seemed so impossible.

Then I stumbled across this photo of my Uncle, taken by my other Uncle, in Iran, right before the revolution and the Shah fell. For some reason, when I stumbled upon this photo, I could feel myself identifying with him. But I saw a hopeful young man, looking out towards the possibilities of life, even amongst a chaotic world. Ultimately, this is why I chose the photo for the cover, it felt right.”
