Surprisingly Brief but Effectual.

Circa Waves are a creature to watch - after their dramatic change in sound on the release of their sophomore album they demonstrate their penchant to do it again. Here an album comprised of 10 tracks demonstrates an exercise simplicity for enjoyment, anthemic and poppy-riffs but never overly done or glorified with overstatement. The lyrical structure opts for subtlety, reflection, gravitas and not pushing, while allowing the bands cohesive sound to do all the talking. The album itself is an achievement in showcasing a multitude of sounds and vibes - also their recent tour is brim-full of experiences which is delicately interlaced in the sounds . Elements of their sophomore rock sound to more beach/summery and festival-laden heavy tracks. Listeners could have been completely misunderstood in thinking that Circa and co. could not pull off another change, or the uncertainty of what the next album would sound like. It's also romantic, deeply personal in the undertones and in their lies the gems. Moving away from the typical indie-band sound has done Circa Waves a wonder and put them on track to a bright future.

Brilliant Record

They've really progressed as a band and proven that they are ready for big stages/the mainstream.
This record is all killer and no filler

Makes me sad

Such a shame that the best thing about this album is the cover art work. First album amazing, second, slightly worse but still buyable. This is just nothing like what I’ve come to expect. Saw them live last year and they weren’t great but put that down to the heat. Maybe the what got their heads writing this 😭
