Liverpool four piece Circa Waves have shared their fourth studio album, Sad Happy.
“We live in a world split into two extreme halves,” frontman Kieran Shudall explains. “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.”
