The second album from shop faves Circa Waves, following on from 2015's brilliant Young Chasers. With the new album, they've amped up their sound and are coming back with a bolder self-belief and an album full of huge songs. We're excited for a new album and another Kingston show!
Wake Up is a big and bold way to start,” reckons frontman Kieran Shudall. ”It shows we’re not messing around anymore”. The overwhelming reaction to Circa Waves’ debut album ‘Young Chasers’ apparently gave the band a boost of confidence when it came to the follow-up. “When I saw the way that people connected with it,” Kieran continues, “I really started to believe in myself, I’m a different person now -I feel like I’ve got a fire in my belly with this record.”
“All of us wanted to make a massive change and bring in these different songs. We played indie songs before and I wanted to progress. The first album felt like a daytime record and this one’s based in the nighttime, if that makes sense. This one’s a lot more about the demons that I face – a lot of love, loss and anxiety. It’s also about the issues that everyone feels like they’re going through together at the moment. We’re in this weird time of change and everything has become different.”
