Music opens us up to each other; we find ourselves at our most vulnerable point, at the rawest edge and open to danger.
Connection, through creativity, is how LAND CAPTAINS find their way lyrically from the story to the music. The music is that opportunity to feel less alone; to feel that collective confidence and make sense of the world, not only for the band but also for the listener. Songs come from the depths of life: both ANGER WITH PURPOSE and HUMOUR WITHOUT HATRED, and through this we give ourselves permission to explore. When we allow ourselves to be open – to have that moment of certainty knowing that ‘this is who we are’ – we can have an honest conversation about our stories, challenge ourselves, and CELEBRATE OUR CONNECTION TO EACH OTHER.
Music is EMOTION.
Music is CONNECTION.
Music is POWER.
LAND CAPTAINS, after their previously successful release Delta, have been busy in the studio creating NEW MUSIC for their follow-up EP HALF MEASURES with final mixes underway we can expect a release date in SPRING 2022.
“Music is where we can meet our emotional freedom and fearlessly explore dark and distant corners, whether that is in humour or in observation. Half Measures explores a raft of ideas and stories, some funny and some dark crazy places, we’re really excited for people hear it!”
The production for HALF MEASURES began back in the spring of 2021 but the music and lyrics to these have been crafted for much longer. LAND CAPTAINS have tirelessly worked to put together their upcoming 5 track EP including a re-imagining of their previous single “Burn The World” and audience favourite “Banana Phone”. All the songs are very different but there is a common commentary on human connection, relatable and in relation to situations that we have all gone through at some point in our lives. This is EMOTION, CONNECTION and POWER.
“This is blood, sweat and tears, not only in the traditional sense but this was the first opportunity for the band to emotionally connect to the lyrics in each of these songs. We were each going through some tough challenges during that period, as we all were around the world at that time, but ultimately we came together and connected through this profoundly personal process.”
LAND CAPTAINS are pleased to announce the title to their upcoming EP HALF MEASURES and will shortly be releasing the debut single 'BANANA PHONE'.
In the spirit of connection, something central to the values of LAND CAPTAINS, this band is and will always be about the energy of live performance and sharing the stage with their audience. These songs have been written to be experienced live; words, music and raw energy combined.
