Edinburgh-based quartet Gypsy Circus blast into 2019 with the release of their vivacious new EP, Holy Lights And Shadows, out now.
Opening with title track and lead single Holy Lights And Shadows, jangling indie hooks are combined with a classic rock feel to create a sound akin to the likes of Biﬀy Clyro or 3 Doors Down. Hard-hitting riffs are out in full force, with frontman Aaron King’s warm, husky vocals becoming increasingly determined and full of emotion and power throughout. Talking about EP, the band elaborate, “the theme that runs through the tracks is awareness. Knowing what you want, not following an agenda that does not work for you and being more in touch with nature/yourself. We know how easy it is to get into the habit of doing something or having a routine that you want to change. Making the initial change might be difficult but it will be worth it in the long run.” Throughout the EP, Gypsy Circus blend elements of blues, classic rock and indie rock to create a sound that is truly their own.
Since forming in 2017, the band have gone from strength to strength, receiving praise from the likes of Soundsphere Magazine and Amazing Radio’s Jim Gellatly to name but a few. With Holy Lights And Shadows, produced by Idlewild’s Rod Jones, and an upcoming Scottish tour, Gypsy Circus hope to mesmerise further listener with their raucous conception of alt-rock.
Holy Lights And Shadows is out now.
