Circa Waves have shared their latest track “Move to San Francisco” from Happy, the first half of their two-part fourth studio album Sad Happy. Alongside the track, the Liverpool band has also debuted a music video for the track, which they self-shot. On January 10, the four-piece rockers will also drop the entire Happy part.
Taken from Happy, “Move to San Francisco” is a track about wishing to find happiness in such city. Frontman Kieran Shudall, according to Dork, indicated how the song was inspired by Bruce Springsteen:
“It’s about escapism, pessimism and Bruce Springsteen. In the spirit of DIY we decided to film the video ourselves and let Joe [Falconer] edit the shit out of it. We walked to the highest point in San Fran, went to the lowest dive bars and even filmed a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge. What the video lacks in camera prowess it makes up for in idiotic charm.”
Prior to the release of Happy, Circa Waves held a secret listening session for their fans in London on January 8. The announcement was made through a video of Shudall wishing everyone on New Year’s Day and inviting Circa Waves’ fans to come and listen to Happy with them. The event is exclusive for Deezer users.
For the release of the first side of Sad Happy us and @deezer are inviting you down to come and listen to ‘Happy’ in full at a secret location in London this Wednesday. We will be there too so you can ask us anything afterwards! Just sign up here to be in with a chance, first come first served on this one! Link in bio.
Happy will be available digitally on January 10, while the second half Sad will come after on March 13 on streaming services and physical copies with Happy included. Circa Waves will also go on tour in support of Sad Happy for seven dates in the UK, kicking off at Glasgow on March 27. Red Rum Club and Vistas are supporting the quartet on selected shows. Tickets are available now via See Tickets.
