Circa Waves have shared a brand new song. The festive track, entitled Miss Christmas, premiered earlier today (December 8th).
Circa Waves dropped some festive breadcrumbs for their new release via social media last night. Taking to Instagram, the band alerted fans of the upcoming track: “Ho Ho Ho our christmas banger is out tomorrow at 10am GMT.”
The indie quintet stayed true to their promise, and took to Instagram again today to post news of Miss Christmas’ arrival. Circa Waves declared in the posts’ caption: “MISS CHRISTMAS, maybe the greatest christmas song ever is out now. Listen to it loud to get in the Christmas spirit!”
The post, which garnered over 2,400 likes and views, clearly provoked excitement amongst fans. One fan commented: “Well done boys!”

Keiran Shudall, frontman of Circa Waves, spoke out about their new festive track. In an official press release, Shudall meditated on the emotional aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, especially around Christmas time.
Shudall continued by discussing the Christmassy effect Circa Waves were trying to achieve with Miss Christmas. Shudall said: “We wanted to make a Christmas song that felt timeless and could sit between Mariah Carey and Paul McCartney on the nation’s Christmas Day. Pass the sprouts!”
Miss Christmas is the latest from the stream of new music that Circa Waves have shared this year. The Liverpool-born band dropped their fourth studio album, Sad Happy, on March 13th, and followed the release with EP, Sadder Happier.
A surprise EP, the self-described “angry record” was shared by the band on May 20th, 2020. Circa Waves also enlisted Alfie Templeman for the collaborative single, Lemonade, on August 27th.
When chatting to NME, Keiran Shudall said of Lemonade: “The song has been a bit prophetic in a sense. It’s almost as if I felt what the nation now feels, months before it all happened. This feeling of imagining that you’d be doing something better than what you’re doing at the time.”
Shudall continued, saying: “I think everyone has that sense all the time anyway, thinking that life should be a bit more interesting than it is, and Corona has just put a massive magnifying glass on that.”
Miss Christmas is out everywhere now.
