Whilst the anthemic ‘Movies’ will appeal to the band’s long-standing fan base, the likes of ‘Sorry I’m Yours’ and ‘Be Somebody Good’ see Circa Waves experiment with a new progressive sound that will surprise and delight in equal measure.

‘Me Myself & Hollywood’ touches on the band’s love of R&B, whilst ‘Times Won’t Change Me’ is a piano-led, Beatles-inspired future hit. What’s It Like Over There? always manages to sidestep genres and easy pigeonholing, but what remains constant is Circa Waves’ ability to create the kind of infectious music that is propelling them towards the top tier of British music. 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.” As a band that are no strangers to hard work, the foundations for album number three are already being laid. Getting underway earlier this month, the boys have been embarking on a sold-out run of some of the most intimate shows they’ve ever played, treating fans to a selection of old favourites and road testing new material, paying back their fierce loyalty and the fanatical support they’ve appreciated from the very beginning. The tour has seen the band visit towns and cities that don’t always receive large touring bands, including the likes of Dunfermline, Kilmarnock, Stockton-on-Tees, Milton Keynes, Guildford and Tunbridge Wells.
