The new R&B–inspired single from UK indie rockers Circa Waves’ third album comes with a music video directed by the group’s very own guitarist Joe Falconer.
“Me, Myself and Hollywood” is based on the people frontman Kieran Shudall saw and remembered while touring in the States, and the video encapsulates all the grit, loneliness, and sordid beauty of Los Angeles; Kieran wanders around the city taking in neon and strip malls, riding a carousel, visiting Venice beach, and checking out Amoeba Music. Much of the vid was shot illegally, with Joe and Kieran avoiding police and irritated store owners.
Circa Waves recently announced their 2019 UK headline tour, with nine shows across the isles. Their upcoming album What’s It Like Over There?—which the band has described as their most cinematic and varied to date, rock music with a slick pop sound—was recorded in just one month, and renews the band’s co-producing relationship with Alan Moulder (Foals, The Killers).
What’s it Like Over There? is due out on 4/5 via Prolifica. Pre-order here.
