British indie rockers Circa Waves have just released their third album ‘What’s It Like Over There?’ and we are a tad obsessed. Recorded in just one month and co-produced by Alan Moulder (The Killers, Foals), ‘What’s It Like Over There?’ is a shining example of how far the band have come since the release of their debut album ‘Young Chasers’ in 2015.
Fusing their classic indie-rock influences with a slick pop sound, Circa Waves have created an infectious record that sidesteps genres and challenges the stereotypical idea of what a indie rock band should sound like. Thematically, the album touches on themes of modern ennui, emotional fragility and all the inside-outs and upside-downs of relationships.
Whilst the anthemic ‘Movies’ will appeal to the band’s long-standing fan base, the likes of ‘Sorry I’m Yours’ and ‘Be Somebody Good’ see Circa Waves experiment with a new progressive sound that will surprise and delight in equal measure. ‘Me Myself & Hollywood’ touches on the band’s love of R&B, whilst ‘Times Won’t Change Me’ is a piano-led, Beatles-inspired future hit.
‘What’s It Like Over There?’ is available now on all major streaming services. Have a listen below and let us know what you think! Tickets for their UK, US and EU tours are also on sale now via their website.
