WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM CAST – FARAWAY

Liverpool band Cast have dropped their latest single ‘Faraway’. It’s the third and final teaser from their forthcoming album ‘Love Is The Call’ and sees a stunning return to the band’s finest form.

When the news broke last year that John Power, Liam Tyson and Keith O’Neill were back together working on new material in Spain with producer Youth, I admit to getting a little excited by the prospect.

John Power is one of those gifted writers who’s always been able to write a great hook and a beautiful melody, throw them together with a catchy chorus or two and make it sound like something that’s always existed. And that’s exactly what he has done with ‘Faraway’.

Right from the very off the track’s a euphoric, dreamy classic pop song laced with understated guitars, stunning cinematic production and gorgeously soothing vocals. There is something quite special about John Power’s voice. At its finest, it’s like a lingering hug from a long-lost loved one and this performance could very well be his best.

According to John, the song “is about trying to find your voice in a world that doesn’t care or seem to want to listen”, but as with all great songs, it works on so many different levels and is open to so many different interpretations.

John has recently shared his view that the coming album visits the place between the end of The La’s and the birth of Cast and whilst the previous two singles ‘Love You Like I Do’ and ‘Love Is The Call’ certainly suggested that would be the case, this track is undoubtedly Cast at their very finest.

With a release date of February 16th, ‘Love Is The Call’ will be Cast’s first new album for six years. The band follow the release with an acoustic tour of independent record stores throughout February and a headline tour in March. The band will also appear as Liam Gallagher’s special guests at his shows this June.
