Circle Pit have released their sophomore single from their upcoming EP titled Wicked Wicked Time.
In the lead up to their Wicked Wicked Time EP release next Friday, Circle Pit are sharing their sophomore single ‘Come To The Beach’ – a sloppy, gnarly, southern-fried boogie-rock track about going to the beach and getting high. Like Creedence Clearwater Revival on some heavy psychedelics, lead singers Angela & Jack snarl and growl through a short, wild, catchy and slightly unhinged combination of Southern Rock, MOR, Boogie, Surf & Punk. Not so much stadium rock as it is getting-loose-in-the-parking-lot-outside-the-stadium-rock.
Circle Pit is the seminal experimental glam/scum rock and roll project of Angela Bermuda & Jack Mannix, formed in Sydney in 2007. While touring the states in 2010 to promote their debut LP ‘Bruise Constellation’ (Siltbreeze) they recorded a downer-glam-boogie 4 song EP with Matt Whitehurst from Psychedelic Horseshit in Columbus, Ohio called Wicked Wicked Time – four songs spanning indecipherable blues, hair metal, downer country & southern fried boogie rock.
This lost record, frozen in time, and the masters possibly lost, is finally seeing the light of day 10 years later in 2020 through Dero Arcade. The incendiary band performing on this record is filled out by Harriet Hudson (Gtr); Al Haddock (Bass) and Owen Penglis (Drums).
Their first release since 2011’s dream-pop ‘Slave/Honey’ 7” (Hardly Art), Dero Arcade’s special pressing of the return of Circle Pit sees four tracks spanning sloppy country, heavy rock ‘n’ roll & indecipherable blues.
To celebrate the forthcoming release, Circle Pit will be performing live in their hometown of Sydney across two nights in late March.
Wicked Wicked Time will be released through Dero Arcade on March 20, 2020 ‘Come To The Beach’ is out now.
