Perhaps the most orthodox of our international picks for 2014, Circa Waves are a swaggering throwback to the louche gutter-rock of The Libertines. Formed just a few months ago, they've already caused a splash in Britain, with single 'Get Away' championed by a bevy of leftfield (ish) DJs. Their's is an interesting backstory too – having spent several years passing in and out of bands, in early 2013, singer Keiran Shuddall decided it was time to knuckle down musically speaking.
“I didn’t used to be as determined as I am now to write songs and make a really good band,” he reflects. “I told myself that I either had to get a real job or give music a proper go and try and make it a success.”
Locked away, he wrote the bones of an album then hooked up with bassist Sam Rourke, drummer Sian Plummer and guitarist Joe Falconer. Even early on it was obvious Shuddall's songs were special and Circa Waves were snapped up by Transgressive, the Warner imprint that brought the world Foals.
