‘Different Creatures’ has been the anticipated second album for Circa Waves since the success of their debut album, ‘Young Chasers’ was released in 2015.
Growing from an up and coming indie band, known for their summer loving hits, to a solid brit band has been an impressive turnaround for the 4 Liverpudlian lads.
This new album has gone and absolutely changed the way I see Circa Waves as a band. Last year I’d put them on to give my summer days a soundtrack but their newly released songs are filled with meaning and depth, which is something I would never have thought I’d say about them.
Having obviously grown, musically and lyrically, as a band over the past two years, Circa Waves have matured and given us an album to really think about.
With themes of their songs ranging from alcoholism to the refugee crisis hitting the UK, the album is a real hard hitter, cementing this album in the British industry.
Being a fan since before their debut album release, this album came as a real surprise to me. I didn’t know what to expect really but these thought provoking songs was not it. I’m saying all of this in a positive light and I actually prefer what they’ve done. By showing their maturity and confidence in standing up and taking these subjects to the public eye shows their passion for other aspects of life as well as just their music.
Even though this album is darker than the first and a lot more guitar forward, Circa Waves are showing that they’re ready to really progress as a band and to eventually become a headlining act to be reckoned with.
Song of the day: Fire that Burns – Circa Waves
Why? I love it and it’s super catchy.
