Interview With Capac
A RICH AND GLITCHY TAPESTRY OF AMBIENT TEXTURES AND DIRTY FUZZ
Representing the sound of Liverpool’s leftfield, Capac weave a rich tapestry of progressive harmonies and ambient textures around a pre-fabricated, precisely-programmed beat. The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that – rather cryptically – their name is capaC spelt backwards. Read into that what you will.
Capac’s fresh, post-rock infused electronica is drawn from an artful blend of innovative production and ‘real sounds’ from their self-created organic palette. Their music embraces the beautiful and the sublime and juxtaposes clean glitch with dirty fuzz. The resulting products are a distinctive sound and a spontaneous and unpredictable live show that will enable you to seriously lose your shit, which, if I’m understanding my modern lingo correctly, can only be a good thing.
Capac released their debut EP (Pastels) through On The Shelf Records last year and have since recorded a Maida Vale session for Huw Stephens and contributed a track to his cunningly-punned compilation Music Sounds Better With Huw. 2011 has seen the release of a number of high profile remixes for artists on Counter Records, Monotreme Records and Kicking Ink Recordings, and the band continue to work on new material. Until this arrives in your ears why not download this remix of Pause they’ve done for Emily Barker (and check out her recent intraview here). You should probably also treat your eyes to a sneaky peek at the video below, which shows Capac performing in a church.
