Album Review: Circa Waves - What's It Like Over There?
Share This Article:
Circa Waves' frontman found scribbled-down ideas that he wrote whilst intoxicated and sleep-deprived when touring and felt detached from them. Like the album title What's Is Like Over There?, Circa Waves' slightly disconnected perspective attempts to re-connect to the lyrics, but also to listeners.
Image Credit: PressDespite being written in America, the album was actually recorded in Liverpool - it is as though the band is viewing themselves within a mirror that spans across time and places. This is Circa Waves' third album, incorporating their shift from their stereotypical indie-rock style to a less clearly-defined style seen in their last album Different Creatures. Despite being slightly out of cusp, it is constantly moving in flux. With its themes of travelling and nostalgia, alongside with the more personal relationships, the album seeks sources of escapism by reaching out to the vast distance of "over there".
