An album of our times, ‘Sad Happy’ is formed of two diametrically distinctive sides, which will see the Happy side released individually in the new year before uniting as one complete body of work on 13th March 2020.
Lead single ‘Jacqueline’ is an infectious, Soweto flavoured groove and another bold slice of bright, life-affirming pop from the pen of Kieran Shudall, who is establishing himself as one of Britain’s most prolific young songwriters. With it’s infectious chorus and refrain of ‘Good times are coming around the bend’, Jacqueline is at once instantly recognisable and also another bold sonic leap forward for Circa Waves. It’s a song that’ll sit effortlessly amongst a setlist already brimming with anthems.
‘Sad Happy’ was written and produced in full by Kieran Shudall, and mixed by Grammy winners Dan Grech-Marguerat and Matt Wiggins.
