Circa Waves are Kieran Shuddall (guitar / vocals), Joe Falconer (guitar), Sam Rourke (bass) & Sian Plummer (drums).
They formed in Liverpool, England in mid-2013 and released their debut single, Get Away in December of that year on renowned independent label, Transgressive Records.
Signing to Virgin Records in early 2014, they released their second single, Stuck In My Teeth in March 2014 to coincide with an appearance on the prestigious NME Awards tour alongside Interpol, Royal Blood and Temples. The tour culminated in a rapturous sold-out show at London’s Brixton Academy.
Recording their debut album with Dan Grech at the famous RAK studios in London, the first single from the sessions, Young Chasers was released in July, following a run of their own sold-out UK headline shows.
The summer of 2014 also saw the band appear at most of the UK’s leading festivals, playing to packed tents at Reading / Leeds and Latitude and a prestigious appearance on the 2nd stage at Glastonbury being highlights.
Having also played a number of the most respected festivals around the globe over the summer, including Summer Sonic in Japan, Oya in Norway and Splendour In The Grass in Australia, the band played their biggest UK headline tour to date in November, a run of shows that included an appearance at Heaven in London.
