The band: Hailing from Liverpool, Circa Waves are a four piece who have been (excuse the pun) making waves in the UK music scene in the last year. In February they played alongside Royal Blood, Temples and Interpol for the NME’s Awards Tour, and have also announced that a debut album is on the horizon.

The sound: New single ‘Young Chasers’ (listen below) is imbued with frantic and youthful energy. It’s built around a low-fi punk backing and covered up with a pop simplicity and radio-friendly hooks. Singer and guitarist Kieran Shudall said of the track: “’Young Chasers’ is one of our most immediate songs, literally. It was written in the morning, the demo was recorded in the afternoon, and put up on soundcloud in the evening, that same night people started playing it on radio”

The lowdown: ‘Young Chasers’ will be released on the 21st July, along with the B-side ‘Shoot the Sky’. The band will then play a spate of summer festivals including Glastonbury, T in the Park, Latitude, and Reading and Leeds among others.
