Exclusive Track Premiere: Circles – “Sand & Wind”


It’s been a massive week for Melbourne prog metallers Circles. Ahead of a second full-length due out later this year, the group have welcomed guitarist Ben Rechter to the fold, fresh from a stint in alt-rock band Glass Empire. On top of that, the band announced that they’ve also been picked up by Bear Parts Music, a boutique artist management company based out of Melbourne.

Well, it seems the big announcements from the Circles camp just keep coming: today they’ve gone and gifted us with a new djent-tinged banger in the form of “Sand & Wind”. Technical yet full of hooks, the soaring new track is fans’ first taste of new music since the band’s 2013 debut, Infinitas, and cements the crew as a serious force in Australia’s burgeoning prog scene.

“We’ve been bunkered down for just over 12 months writing and recording our second (yet to be titled) full-length album,” says drummer Dave Hunter. “One thing we all agreed on was that we didn’t want to write ‘Infinitas 2.0’. Without giving too much away, this will be a side of Circles that people wouldn’t have heard before and we’re really excited about it!”

“Sand & Wind” will be getting a spin on triple j’s The Racket later tonight, but you can stream (and download) it in all of its glory right now.
