Exclusive Release: Circumnavigate - ‘Back In The Day’

By: Bobby Latter

I saw the familiar name of Circumnavigate with a lovely proposal of an exclusive release of their new track ‘Back In The Day’ immediately I clicked the link and listened to it, not once nor twice but a good five or six times, it wasn’t what I was expecting but definitely not a bad thing. It took me a while to wrap my head around this new sound, in which they’ve diversified their already eclectic sound, ‘Back In The Day’ is a fun video full of burnt marshmallows, bonfires and fancy dress costumes in the middle of the woods, nostalgic I suppose to them…not so much for me, my friends and I weren’t organised enough to have marshmallows and were too poor to own fancy dress costumes of that calibre.

I saw the familiar name of Circumnavigate alongside the lovely proposal of an exclusive release of their new track 'Back In The Day'; of course, I immediately clicked the link. I ended up listening to it not once, not twice, but a good five or six times. Although it wasn't what I was expecting (definitely not a bad thing) and it took me a while to wrap my head around this new sound, it still rocked. The band have diversified their already eclectic sound and 'Back In The Day' is still a fun video full of burnt marshmallows, bonfires and fancy dress costumes in the middle of the woods. My friends and I weren't organised enough to have marshmallows and were too poor to own fancy dress costumes of that calibre, but I guess it was pretty nostalgic for them.

Circumnavigate have moved away from their ethereal combination of soundscape-based and cinematic music for a few songs on their upcoming album (which, for the time being, is untitled). In this track, we see Circumnavigate working from a more folk-oriented song sheet with a lot of crescendo chorus builds into melodically navigated verses. As always, Circumnavigate don't fail to impress, and it's only a short while until their second single from the album is released. Thankfully, unlike the secrecy-shrouded album, we've got a name for that; and it's Breathe Slow. Keep your eyes on Disorder for updates, or check out Circumnavigate via the links below. We've also included the video for 'Back In The Day' down below, because we're nice like that.
