Having formed back in 2014 whilst studying at BIMM Bristol, Circe's Diner - aka Rosina Buck and Bronte Shande - have now released their brand new single Who Dares, out now via Rough Kitchen Records.

The video for the single premiered on Gigslutz and is now available to stream on the Circe's Diner YouTube channel.


An uplifting track about being brave, despite all the sorrows of life that can make us dysfunctional, Who Dares is a truly magical slice of alt-folk. Filled with the intricate harmonies of Buck and Shande flowing perfectly with each other alongside delicate, twinkling melodies, it’s an empowering creation reassuring the listener that there’s still hope for love. Of the song, the duo explain: “Our timing and phrasing is a key part of the sound and is our way of keeping the audience encapsulated in the stories we tell, we have a bond and energy between us that reflects the madness we sometimes feel and takes our audience on a journey.”

The audio for Who Dares premiered on Folk Radio UK and is available to stream via the band's Soundcloud page now.



With performances at Glastonbury and Boomtown festivals, and support slots with the likes of Let’s Eat Grandma and Oh Pep! already under their belts, Circe's Diner look set to draw in listeners worldwide with their enchanting harmonies and endearingly honest lyrics that will resonate with anyone who’s had a broken heart.
