Circa Waves – Live At Best Kept Secret 2015 – June 19, 2015 – 3VOOR12-FM – Netherlands –

Circa Waves for a Monday Night – in concert at the 2015 Kept Secret Festival from June 19, 2015 and broadcast by 3VOOR12 in The Netherlands.

Circa Waves formed in Liverpool in 2013. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Kieran Shudall, guitarist Joe Falconer, bassist Sam Rourke, and drummer Colin Jones. Shudall met both Rourke and Plummer through mutual friends at Liverpool Sound City in 2013, meeting Falconer not long after at the same festival where he worked as a stage manager. During the summer and autumn of 2013 the band played several short UK tours, which included some secret shows. In a July 2014 interview in Paris, Falconer stated regarding the band name’s origin, “Kieran wrote the demo for “Young Chasers”, recorded it and uploaded it to SoundCloud in one day. As he was uploading it he needed a name and it was the first thing that came into his head in that split second. ”

On 2 December 2013, the band released their debut single “Get Away/Good For Me”, a double A-side on Transgressive Records handled by Jen Long’s Kissibility label. In February 2014 Zane Lowe played the band’s second single “Stuck in My Teeth” as his Hottest Record in the World. The band opened the NME Awards Tour in March 2014, which also included Temples, Interpol and Royal Blood. On 10 June 2014 Circa Waves released their Young Chasers EP on Virgin Records in the USA. A Japanese edition was released on 2 July 2014.

Also during 2014 they supported The 1975 on tour around the UK.

Circa Waves performed at various festivals during the summer of 2014, including Hurricane and Southside Festivals in Germany, Latitude Festival, T in the Park, Glastonbury Festival, and Splendour in the Grass (Australia). They also performed at Arenal Sound (Spain), Summersonic in Japan, and at Reading and Leeds Festival at the end of August 2014.

On 19 November 2019 the band released the single “Jacqueline” via BBC Radio 1. The single was accompanied by the announcement of their upcoming album Sad Happy. The album was released in two parts, with the Happy side released in January 2020 and the Sad side followed in March 2020. According to the band, the double album concept “represents two sides of this tech-saturated, highly insecure age”.

Crank it up and enjoy, it’s only Monday after all.
