Swedish rockers Capricorn unleashes their first single “The Searcher” from the upcoming album “For The Restless”.
Doffe Ekberg (lead singer) comments on the single:
– It was the last song to be recorded for the album, we had another one in mind but I had a very simple version of The Searcher demoed on my phone. We learned it and recorded it in a couple of hours. It felt amazing, a magic moment for sure.
