New album on the way from dream pop trio The Capsules

THE Capsules are set to release their album Northern Lights & Southern Skies in the UK on July 8th.

The band from Lawrence, Kansas, have been described as having an "otherworldly aura" and their story is certainly one for the romantics.

Jason and Julie Shields began writing music together in high school, falling in love in the process and later getting married and starting their first band, Shallow.

When their friends were deciding what to do with their lives, the Shields 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.

And a bright future beckons for the trio. You can find out more at, or @TheCapsules on Twitter.
