Circa Waves have released 'Happy', the optimistic first half of their new album

Circa Waves have released 'Happy', the first half of their new album.

The band's fourth studio album 'Sad Happy' will be released in its entirety on 13th March, with the first half available now - check it out below.

Frontman Kieran explains the concept: "We live in a world split into two extreme halves. One moment you’re filled with the existential crisis of climate doom and the next you’re distracted by another piece of inconsequential content that has you laughing aloud.

"I find this close proximity of immense sadness and happiness so jarring, bizarre and fascinating. Our brains rattle back and forth through emotions at such a rate that happiness and sadness no longer feel mutually exclusive.

"This idea was the blueprint for 'Sad Happy' and is the theme that underpins the album. Sad / Happy is written in my Liverpool home, it’s also hugely inspired by my surroundings and the love I have for the city. It runs through thoughts on mortality, love and observations of people."

You can also catch the band on tour throughout March.
