La Capsula is a two piece psychedelic folk duo from Manchester and Rome, comprising Mark Corrin (bass, vocals) and Luisa Maraffino (guitar, vocals). Their debut is called “Time Capsule”.
Previous projects from members of the line up have been played on the BBC 1 John Peel Show, 6 Music and Nick Luscombe’s Late Junction on Radio 3.
These initial 4 songs are musically both lush and lo-fi, mellow and melodic, recorded on location in Italy and at home in Manchester with intimate one take only vocals inspired by nature walks and escape from the everyday.
Some subtle inspirations for the project could include John Martyn, Talk Talk, Julian Cope, Kevin Ayers, Arab Strap, Bonny Prince Billy and Songs Ohia.
Mark and Luisa are also members of Elastikbande and Mark has his own solo project.
The debut EP releases 6th March 2020 in digital and CD format.
