The Capsules - Northern Lights & Southern Skies Official UK Release – July 8 th

The Capsules have a tendency for sleepless nights, writing pensive, late night
reveries. When they emerge from these states, they bring with them a
soundtrack to the half forgotten memories that pass through the space
between reality and whimsy.
The songs on Northern Lights & Southern Skies unfold in the place where the
heart is open to the mysteries of the universe and help us gain a bit of insight
into the experiences of love, loss, and longing that makes us human. Julie
Shields has a comforting voice that sounds like your best friend whispering in
your ear, while the melodic bass of Jason Shields and Kevin Trevino’s
understated drumming keep things deceptively simple.
The Capsules decided to expand their pallet on Northern Lights & Southern
Skies and used less guitar and more keyboards, loops and electronics than
they have on previous efforts. They still have their otherworldly aura, but
there’s also a dark edge that keeps everything rooted to the earth.
Jason and Julie started writing music together in high school. In the process,
they fell in love, got married, and started their first band, which was called
Shallow. At an age when most people are trying to figure out what they want
to do with their lives, they were already signed, professional musicians touring
the world.
After Shallow ended, Julie and Jason continued writing, looking for a
drummer to compliment their lush, bright pop lullabies. Kevin Trevino had
been a fan of Shallow and, after a few rehearsals under the newly formed
name The Capsules, the trio clicked. They started touring, making records and
winning fans, including Steven Hillenburg, the creator of
SpongeBob SquarePants, who asked them to write a song for the show. Their songs have also been used in several video games, including the megahit
Borderlands 2.
They have shared the stage with lot of great acts including The Flaming Lips,
Garbage, Low, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Pinback, Juliana Hatfield, and
The Mountain Goats.
Look out for videos for “Across the Sky” and “Our Apocalypse”, then they’ll be
playing select dates while they continue to explore new sonic territory that will
allow them to take their heart wrenching visions into even more exciting
musical and emotional dimensions.
