British rock band Circa Waves from Liverpool will perform in Kyiv’s Atlas Club on 1 November, as part of Selector Live. This will be the band’s first performance in Ukraine.
Well known producer Alan Moulder who previously produced Foals and The Killers took a hand in the recent release of the Liverpudlians latest album called “What's It Like Over There?”. The result is a breath-taking fusion of British indie and film score-like pop sound. The album’s 10 unforgettable tracks are sure to be included in your summer playlist, and when fall comes you will still find yourself singing along with the band’s vocalist Kieran Shudall.
“We wanted to make it as powerful and as cinematic as it could be. Being completely open to experiments is really cool,” says Kieran Shudall.
“What's It Like Over There?” demonstrates the symbiotic relationship between the emotional depth of the lyrics and the art of music writing. “Owing to touching piano part and tender voice of the vocalist, the track ‘Times Won’t Change Me’ sounds so yummy that unintentionally you may think of eating it and the rhythm of 'Movies' is so catchy,” gushed the media in reaction to the release.
Circa Waves albums’ sound is nothing if not versatile; from the summery indie-rock of their debut “Young Chasers”, to the heavier “Different Creatures” with drive of the guitar and drums. The new album blends Brit rock and electronic elements, which makes Circa Waves a fantastic live band and a find for huge numbers of music lovers all over the world.
