Circa Waves announces their fifth album Never Going Under, out January 13, 2023 via Lower Third/PIAS. Ahead of the release, the UK band have shared the album track “Do You Wanna Talk.”

Speaking about Never Going Under, frontman Kieran Shudall says: “Never Going Under speaks to that uniquely modern phenomenon of genuinely not knowing what type of world our kids are going to find themselves in in 30 years. Physically, environmentally, politically we are completely in the unknown. That scares us all but ultimately we know we can never give up on the future because how can you? The songs on the album are written differently from the previous work we’ve put out. They are written from the perspective of my son and also from my own current experience of the climate today. Circa waves have always had a certain world view, but now it’s through that lens of being a father and still not knowing what the hell is going on. Never Going Under is a snapshot of the fear we all feel today and the resilience we will need to get through it.”

To coincide with the album announcement, Circa Waves have also released the driving new single “Do You Wanna Talk”, available to stream here. An instantly infectious indie banger, DYWT is the perfect Circa Waves song – combining upbeat lyrical delivery with raucous, rousing instrumentation, culminating in a late contender for song of the summer. Accompanying the track is a video directed by the band’s own Joe Falconer, which offers an early insight into the visual identity of Never Going Under as a project.
