It doesn’t usually take much to talk me out of posting about a band and not having any music on their Soundcloud should have been game over for Circa Waves. Elliot managed to track a song down in the end and it makes me scared as to what else I’ve missed through laziness because this is gold. Galloping in with some simplistic fuzz pop chugging, the song soon begins to expand when the Casablacas indebted vocals come in, marrying the perfect amount of Is This It’s life-affirming melancholy with a shot of beachy pop hookiness. The best thing about this song though is that you haven’t heard everything until the last note. It avoids simple copy paste structuring and keeps adding subtle textural differences and the riff that comes in at 1.40 turned this into one of the best songs I’ve heard this year. Now put stuff back on soundcloud.
Why no Soundcloud homies? Comment!
