Circa Waves Premieres New Song “Carry You Home” on BBC Radio 1
Liverpool-based alt-rock band Circa Waves, consisting of Kieran Shudall (vocals/guitar), Sam Rourke (bass), Colin Jones (drums) and Joe Falconer (lead guitar), premiered a new song “Carry You Home” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Sian Eleri.
The song will appear on their upcoming fifth studio album “Never Going Under”.
The track was written and produced by Kieran Shudall. The accompanying music video was directed by Joseph Falcovici.
The new album comprises 11-track and is set to be released on January 13, 2023 via PIAS.
Director Joseph Falcovici said of the video, “It’s a video for everyone who found themselves growing up in a small town wishing to leave, and their close friends they left behind then they did. The lyrics have an undertone of a father being worried that climate change may fundamentally change the world his son grows up in. Brutalist architecture was an expression of post-war optimism and a re-imagining of how society might live in the future.”
He continued, “Many of these structures have since become dilapidated or even demolished. These buildings are relics of the past’s imagined future in a time where the future is a major cause anxiety for younger generations. I wanted to contrast interactions with those imposing concrete structures and the fragile natural world we may lose.”
- Kieran Shudall said of the album, “Never Going under speaks to that uniquely modern phenomenon of genuinely not knowing what type of world our kids are going to find themselves in in 30 years. Physically, environmentally, politically we are completely in the unknown.”
He continued, “That scares us all but ultimately we know we can never give up on the future because how can you? The songs on the album are written differently from the previous work we've put out. They are written from the perspective of my son and also from my own current experience of the climate today.”
He added, “Circa Waves have always had a certain world view, but now it's through that lense of being a Father and still not knowing what the hell is going on. Never Going Under is a snapshot of the fear we all feel today and the resilience we will need to get through it.”
