Circa Waves mark their highly-anticipated return with the two new brilliant tracks ‘Movies’ & ‘Be Somebody Good’ which come as their first offerings from new studio album What’s It Like Over There?
Recorded in just one month, the new album is creatively unshackled and refuses to stay still as the quartet continue to let their relationship blossom with Alan Moulder (Foals, The Killers).
The LP fuses the visceral thrill of rock music with a slick pop sound, its themes of modern ennui, emotional fragility and all the inside-outs and upside-downs of relationships making it a record that could only have been made now.
Speaking of the new album, Kieran Shudall and guitarist Joe Falconer commented: “We wanted to start seeing ourselves less in those defined roles – the drummer, the bass player – and blurring the lines a bit more,” says Falconer.
Shudall adds: “I’m really getting into the world of ‘let the song be the greatest song it could be’, and not let the restrictions of ‘we’re a rock band’ rule.”
“We wanted to make it as big and powerful and as cinematic as it could be. Being completely open to using everything at your whim is really exciting.”
