About Circa Waves

The members of English indie band Circa Waves first met while attending the 2013 Liverpool Sound City music festival.

∙ They got a big early boost from then-BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe, who played the demo of their song “Young Chasers” twice on his show before Circa Waves had even played a gig.
∙ Concerned about living up to early hype, they played 10 shows under the name Malkovich Malkovich, while they polished their stage act without fan or press attention.
Young Chasers, the band’s 2105 full-length debut, was their first of four consecutive Top 10 albums in the UK.
∙ Circa Waves teamed up with producer Alan Moulder (U2, Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins) for their albums Different Creatures and What’s It Like Over There?.
∙ “Lemonade,” a 2020 single, was a collaboration with singer-songwriter Alfie Templeman, who recorded his vocals remotely due to the COVID-19 lockdown.
