“...Caspian has emerged as an elite band that deserves a place in the conversation about the changing face, sound and scope of instrumental rock music.”
– NPR Music


“Caspian have delivered for their listeners and fans two things consistently: passages of music of real beauty and almost transcendent heft on the one hand and, on the other, thunderous power and aggression virtually unmatched by any other act within their post-rock genre.”
– Under the Radar Magazine


In the pantheon of post-rock music, Massachusetts post-rock band Caspian have cemented themselves a spot with their textured, emotionally potent compositions. Produced over two decades, their discography encapsulates the sonic possibilities that instrumental post-rock can offer—euphoric soundscapes; aggressive and distortion-heavy walls-of-sound; quietly delicate melodies—sometimes all found within a single song.


While their acclaimed 2015 album Dust and Disquiet was a deeply personal meditation on loss and grief, the band’s most recent record On Circles (2020) presents itself as an existential exploration on the cyclical nature of music-making and life itself, reflected through the meandering and circular paths taken by each song. In the words of guitarist and keyboardist Philip Jamieson, “Life isn’t a series of epic crescendos.”


Nearly 10 years since their performance at Mosaic Music Festival, Caspian returns to Singapore at Esplanade’s newest venue, the Singtel Waterfront Theatre. This is a chance for dedicated old-timers and new fans alike to experience Caspian’s cathartic and transcendent live shows in one night of mesmerising post-rock.

Formed in 2003 in Massachusetts, United States, post-rock band Caspian first made their presence known with You Are the Conductor in 2015, a record that resulted in several regional and national tours in the US. The band continued their upward trajectory with subsequent records The Four Trees (2007) and Tertia (2009), alongside tours in North America and Europe as well as two special shows in China. In 2011 they released the critically acclaimed Waking Season, dubbed by Spin Magazine as “the Best Post-Rock Album of the Year”. Tragedy befell the band in 2013 with the untimely passing of founding bassist Chris Friedrich. The band pushed through this loss, releasing their long-awaited fourth studio album Dust & Disquiet in 2015, which remains one of their most popular release to date. The band returned with the album On Circles in 2020 and the limited edition On Circles: The Complete Sessions in 2023.
