Circa Waves Unveils New Song “Move to San Francisco”
- English alt-rock band Circa Waves will release their fourth studio album “Sad Happy” consisting of 2 parts. The first is out this Friday (January 10th) and the second on March 13th.
“The cool thing about having one side called Sad and one side called Happy is that people interpret lyrics and feelings and sounds in certain ways,” frontman Kieran Shudall told American Songwriter. “Through our songs, people who listen to it can say oh that was a sad song, that was a happy song.”
He continued, “A lot of music like Radiohead has real sad elements but you feel uplifted after it. That’s the point of this album, that sadness and happiness kind of blend into one. Once this album is released as a whole, it will feel like an amalgamation of one big sad-happy.”
From the album, the band has unveiled new song “Move to San Francisco” with an accompanying music video.
“Inspired by The Beatles’ favorite instrument, the Mellotron, ‘Move to San Francisco’ was written in a quick burst,” he explained. “It’s about escapism, pessimism, and Bruce Springsteen. In the spirit of DIY we decided to film the video ourselves and let Joe [Falconer] edit the shit out of it. We walked to the highest point in San Fran, went to the lowest dive bars, and even filmed a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge. What the video lacks in camera prowess it makes up for in idiotic charm.”
