EDITORS’ NOTES

The debut album from UK indie rock foursome Circa Waves is a rambunctious mix of buzzing punk energy and bright pop melodies. Young Chasers offers a non-stop rush of catchy garage riffs, slick new wave hooks, sugary choruses and tumbling drums. The band bashes their way through infectious tunes like “Good for Me” and “So Long,” and they keep things speedy and breezy even when showing off their sensitive side on sweet sing-alongs like “Stuck in My Teeth” and “My Love.” Young Chasers is packed with surprisingly sharp lyrics and stylish attitude, but mostly it’s just a blast of bouncy summertime fun.

About Circa Waves

Indie rock band Circa Waves was formed in Liverpool in May 2013 by guitarist and singer Keiran Shuddall, who had decided to "knuckle down" and commit fully to music after spending years in a succession of no-hope garage bands. After writing a batch of songs and putting some demos online, he recruited second guitarist Joe Falconer, bassist Sam Rourke, and drummer Sian Plummer (male, despite his name), and the band undertook a few short tours of the U.K. and Europe. Their melodic, propulsive rock sound, heavily inspired by the Strokes and also often compared to the Vaccines, was well-received by audiences, and such a buzz built around them that they were soon offered a deal with Transgressive Records, erstwhile home of Foals, the Subways, and Mystery Jets. Their debut single, the double-A-side "Get Away"/"Good for Me," was released in December 2013 and was almost immediately hailed the "Hottest Record in the World" by taste-making BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe. In 2015, Circa Waves released their debut full-length album, Young Chasers, on Virgin/EMI. The reception they received for their debut instilled the band with a greater sense of confidence, as a result they returned to the studio almost immediately after touring; with their renewed vigor they created a heavier, beefier sophomore record, 2017's Different Creatures. ~ John D.
