Uk Band Circa Waves have shared their new single “Times Won’t Change Me” accompanied by a video. The clip features frontman Kieran approach a piano in his dressing gown. As he plays the opening chords of the track the screen splits and sees Kieran transported into a looking glass fantasy world complete with a lighting rig and the rest of the band (Joe, Colin & Sam) performing wearing chic, clean-cut black suits and ties. Just as the track builds around that piano riff, the video builds itself around the piano, ending with Kieran sitting alone as he was, the moment of inspiration over. The track is off the group’s current release WHAT’S IT LIKE OVER THERE?, out now via PIAS. Circa Waves will hit the road for a tour of the UK, starting April 15th in Oxford.
Recorded in just one month and renewing their blossoming co-producing relationship with Alan Moulder (Foals, The Killers), What’s It Like Over There?
Speaking of the new album, Shudall and guitarist Joe Falconer comment; “We wanted to start seeing ourselves less in those defined roles – the drummer, the bass player – and blurring the lines a bit more,” says Falconer. Instruments were swapped, pianos were played, the song was king. “I’m really getting into the world of ‘let the song be the greatest song it could be’, and not let the restrictions of ‘we’re a rock band’ rule,” adds Shudall. “We wanted to make it as big and powerful and as cinematic as it could be. Being completely open to using everything at your whim is really exciting.”
