Southern California based four-piece, CAPTIONS, distinctively obscures Indie Rock inclinations through compositions reminiscent to the warm-weathered days of their home and emotions nostalgic to the cool-winded nights. Produced by Jacob Summers (Avid Dancer) and Leif Davidsen of Los Angeles founded recording studio, Gypsy Sound Studios, CAPTIONS.’ debut full length album, ‘ITERATIONS’, lends itself to lustrous mid-tempo rock and resonant, merciful melodies.
‘Bearfights’, the first track off of ‘ITERATIONS’, takes a grounded approach to angst through focused melodies and wandering riffs. On the evolution of the LP, lead singer, John Figueroa, relays “there was a plethora of different events that inspired both the making of the music, and the words that are being sung. Mostly, channeling different experiences we’ve had and figuring out ways to condense those experiences into a few lines, then trying to entwine them together to form a whole new story altogether.”

Formed in the Summer of 2011, South Wales four-piece CLIMBING TREES soon came to the attention of BBC Introducing with the distinctive Cymrucana sound of their critically-acclaimed 2013 debut album HEBRON. Recorded in isolation in the woods of Carmarthenshire, the band achieved playlisting across BBC Radio Wales before being announced as one of twelve artists to take part in the inaugural year of the BBC and Arts Council of Wales’ ‘Horizons’ project in the Spring of 2014.

The following months saw appearances at Green Man Festival, Festival No.6 and The Hay Festival during a twenty-date Summer Festival Tour which also included a triumphant performance at the Dylan Thomas Centenary celebrations in Laugharne Castle. A live session at London’s legendary Maida Vale Studios followed, with a television appearance alongside the BBC National Orchestra of Wales rounding off what proved to be a rather busy year for the band.

As well as soundtracking the BBC’s ‘Real Valleys’ season and featuring in American documentary ‘Fade To Winter’, 2015 saw work begin on the eagerly-awaited and much-anticipated follow-up to HEBRON before a string of dates in support of lead single GRAVES, a track which also featured on the ‘Reach Out: Welsh Rock For Refugees’ compilation alongside the likes of Stereophonics, Manic Street Preachers and Super Furry Animals.

Following the success of recent single TRACKS, which gained airplay from the likes of Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson, the band released the Welsh Music Prize-shortlisted BORDERS through Staylittle Music this summer to rave reviews, and with a run of high-profile shows into the Autumn in support of latest single ‘AMBER’, 2016 is continuing to be another big year for Climbing Trees.
