The band will be playing its first SXSW showcases next month, including Hype Hotel and Communion.See below for details. Circa Waveswas one of the runaway successes at CMJ 2014 with The New York Times comparing their performance to the “relentless rhythm-guitar drive of the Strokes.” NME praised the band for “making some of the liveliest, most epic-sounding guitar tunes around” while The Telegraph observed, “Circa Waves craft unashamedly upbeat indie-pop songs with infectious melodies and rousing choruses.”
Circa Waves won the coveted opening slot on the 2014 NME Awards tour, performing alongside Interpol, Royal Blood and Temples. The band has performed in front of packed tents at many festivals, including Glastonbury and Reading/Leeds, toured extensively with The 1975 and closed out 2014 with a sold-out headline tour of the U.K.
