Things are a bit dark at the moment right? We’re deep in the midst of winter, in the midst of a pretty dark year in general so it’s pretty easy to see why things are turning to the dark side more and more. It’s not like those sunny summer days of joyous youth and starry-eyed dreaming - something Circa Waves know more about than anyone. After a debut album that triggered more bouncing bodies than a bouncy castle, ‘Wake Up’ is the gritty moment of realisation, the defiant fist in the air for a generation of young people who over the past year and half have been greeted into an entirely different world.

Beefier and bolder than anything they’ve done before, ‘Wake Up’ is a true coming of age mover - packed with cutting guitar lines and a chorus the size of Everest. Like a lit fuse, it sparkles and fizzes with the energy of a band ready to take on the world, ready to become more than a summer-anthem machine and ready to carry that flag for a generation who need a band to believe in.

If you thought you knew what Circa Waves were all about then think again. ‘Wake Up’ is the statement of intent from a band ready to take on any season. Jamie Muir

You can listen to Circa Waves' 'Wake Up' on our Brand New Bangers Spotify playlist now.
