Our very own Tracey Binnie will be interviewing Black Circles on Late Night Rock this Wednesday (22nd).

BLACK CIRCLES are an alternative power-trio from Kent, England, whose new single ‘Escape’, has helped to gain them nearly 7,500 Twitter followers and 4,000 Facebook fans and created a buzz on several top online music blogs.

Their previous single ‘Final Straw’ (Classic Rock Magazine’s ‘Track of the Day’) a confident and muscular follow up to debut release ‘Little Girl’ (iTunes, Aug 2010) received glowing reviews online, airplay on Tom Robinson’s Introducing Show on BBC Radio 6 and Total Rock Radio as well as features in national magazines – Rhythm, Bass Guitar, Black Velvet, Somojo, Japan Weekly and Hello Kitty Fashion.

Both ambitious and demanding of themselves as songwriters and musicians, Black Circles combine the valve fuzz of Queens of The Stone Age with the blistering pop melodies of early Foo Fighters. Yet it is the creative synergy between guitarist/singer Dan’s impassioned vocals, Mayumi’s hypnotic bass lines and Tris’s masterful drumming that make the Black Circles’ sound so unique.

A live favourite on the UK gig scene, Black Circles undertook a RocSoc university tour and played a series of summer festivals up and down the country to promote Final Straw (iTunes, May 2011). The band wowed crowds and won new fans with performances at Farm Festival, Indie Week Ireland, Big Bike Festival and the legendary Great Escape in Brighton. Top production company ‘Crossroad Films’ (Biffy Clyro, Athlete, and Muse) were so impressed by their energetic live show that they produced the video for the single.

With the video for new single ‘Escape’ getting nearly 8,500 views on YouTube since its release, there’s no doubt Black Circles have their sights set on big things in 2012.
