Biography

BLACK CIRCLES are a rock band from the Kent, UK. The video for their last single ‘Escape’ got 10,000 hits on YouTube, and helped them to gain nearly 12,000 Twitter followers and 4,000 Facebook fans worldwide.

Previous release ‘Final Straw’ (iTunes 2011, Classic Rock Magazine’s ‘Track of the Day’) received glowing reviews on line, airplay on Tom Robinson’s BBC Radio 6 Introducing Show and Total Rock Radio.

Black Circles combine the valve fuzz of Queens of The Stone Age with the blistering pop melodies of early Foo Fighters. Yet it is the creative synergy between guitarist/singer Dan’s impassioned vocals and Mayumi’s hypnotic bass lines that make their sound so unique.

The band have been featured in national press (Rhythm, Black Velvet, Somojo, Japan Weekly, Bass Guitar) as well as top online music blogs.

A live favourite on the UK gig scene, Black Circles have played RocSoc university tours, countless festivals up and down the country most notably Farm Festival, Indie Week, Big Bike Festival and The Great Escape. In October 2012 they were finalists in the 'Play&Stay' competition judged by US-indie rockers We Are Scientists.

With a brand new single 'Playing Games' and animated video released on 22nd April, there is no doubt Black Circles have their sights set on big things in 2013.

Lyrics

Escape

Written By: Black Circles

Send all the demons in
Pick holes in everything
Then wonder why you've come undone

Play on your inner fears
Scratch til' the bones appear
Only to find you've got it wrong

I have been in your shoes
I know what you're going through
Promise me you'll hold yourself together

I wish that I could find another way
So you don't hurt anymore
Escape your world just for a little while
To remember what you're here for

Let paranoia grow
Stop trusting what you know
Then wonder why you’re losing heart

Say that you feel no pain
Give up the ghost again
Only to find you fall apart

I have been in your shoes
I know what you're going through
Promise me you'll hold yourself together

I wish that I could find another way
So you don't hurt anymore
Escape your world just for a little while
To remember what you're here for
