"delightfully bizarre, intensely passionate and boy are we glad to have them in Austin" ... "guaranteed to get you on your feet" ... "both wild and precise; playful and serious" - KUTX Austin


"going for the jugular on this record." - PureVolume


"punchy, pop sound spiked with orchestral flourishes" ... "quirky sensibility" ... "a hybrid that’s baroque and compact at the same time"
- Art Levy - - KUTX Austin


"intense passion and creativity"
“vibrant charisma and contagious musical unity, which reached brilliant heights” - Music Connection


"Vocals are lustrous and lively whilst the musical arrangement shows off the quality and capability of the band. Definitely on my must hear list." - Beehive Candy


"This is an off centre wonder. With shiny horns, ambivalent rhythms and plum keys.Sensational in its grooviness and gratifyingly crazy without being bizarre." - Raw Ramp


Sonicbids; "Indie psychedelic band The Human Circuit hails from Austin, and they've had no shortage of radio play" -


"They come off as real and their imaging suggests that the music is more important than an image." - Sonicbids


"Indie neo-psych-rock band The Human Circuit applies deliciously lengthy interludes of trumpet, drums, and keys between groovy songs that make genius use of synths to infuse the atmosphere with sunshine and creativity." - Pop Press International- Madeline Harvey


"allows you to marvel at the obvious talent that lies at the fingertips of the players" - WRUV


"a virtual jambalaya of musical influences" - University of Texas Arlington


This unique group offers more than just a sound, but an experience that is its own form of art. - Austin Insider


"If you’re looking for more of an experimental, psychedelic pop sound, then go see The Human Circuit live. "
"They’re an intriguing band and definitely one to keep your eye on." - The Austinot- Matthew Champion


"Takes you on a journey" -


"They control every second of their songs, and the attention to detail really shows."
WSKB Westfield, MA. - WSKB


"The Human Circuit’s second album “Frequent Seas” is a thing of beauty. Fusing together essential instrumental and harmonious build-ups with expressive lyrics, The Human Circuit’s music articulates what it means to be fundamentally human and free." - Austin Live Review


"both playful but deliberate, touched with a hint of the surreal. Like a waking dream, The Human Circuit weaved keyboards, synthesizers, violins, trumpets, trombones and vocals into a lush musical experience." - Austin Live Review


With The Human Circuit’s music video to be released in mid-November, what was your favorite aspect of creating your video for “Time As Proof”?

My favorite part, which I’m certain varies between us each, was noticing how quickly our community was able to come together and create a masterpiece out of a vague idea. We all connected and learned to communicate with each other much better than ever before.

What other musical projects have you been involved in?

I record solo records but tend to keep them a secret. I change my name every time in order to keep it mostly out of sight. The next project which is planned to be released before December is called Henry Spencer’s Radiator. It’s a full length album titled Inner Sessions. It will be available free for anyone this December.

What’s something very few people would guess about you?

Strangely, I’m also a registered nurse with a Bachelor of Science degree and a Bridging Discipline in ethics of healthcare. I practice nursing three nights per week and music/videos the rest of the time.


What advice do you have for aspiring musicians?

Practice your rudiments and scales. But then unlearn them all. Play shows – a lot. Go to shows, especially locally – great knowledge and great networking.
Mostly: find your best friends that are musicians and play music with them. Never ever entertain being in a band with someone you can’t respect, love, and defend.

- Mat Oldiges - Trish Connolly


"With infectious melodies, upbeat vocals and encompassing horns, The Human Circuit lets you get lost in their music and leaves you coming out in positive bliss." - Austin Live Review


"a visually and emotionally stunning collection of music videos."
"diverse instrumental backing and an authentic, one-of-a-kind sound." - Sonicbids

Bio

Hailing from Austin, TX, Pop-Rock band, The Human Circuit spent more than a third of 2018 touring self-released album, “Electric City” which gained national radio charting, loads of press, prime time slots in music festivals, and a growing desire to transform these inspirations into even more art.  

With catchy, orchestral, grooves ranging from the mystic vibes of David Bowie to the intricate arrangements of Arcade Fire, The Human Circuit is “guaranteed to get you on your feet (KUTX)”. Currently, The Human Circuit is producing their first EP with Engineering guru Charles Godfrey (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Of Montreal, Bullet For My Valentine, Third Eye Blind, Hanson, Gogol Bordello, Sublime with Rome, Swans and more) and word-renowned Mastering mastermind, Alex Saltz (Vampire Weekend, David Bowie, Deer Tick, R.E.M., Tom Petty, Cheap Trick, Buzzcocks, Steven Van Zandt, and more).  While putting the final touches on this EP, The Human Circuit is adding to an already “visually and emotionally stunning collection of music videos (-Sonicbids)”.

The Human Circuit is honored to constantly receive charming press reviews from the likes of, PureVolume, Sonicbids, KUTX, Music Connection, MuzicNotez, Beehive Candy, Skope, Pop Press International, and more.

The Human Circuit has already performed with bands such as; The Zombies, The Octopus Project, Boogarins, The Peach Kings, Smoke Season, Calliope Musicals, Ringo Deathstarr, and is performance-ready to perform alongside more national acts.
