Ciircus Street find life affirming sentiments from the depths of heartbreak on their new single “Broken”.

by Christopher Smith

Ciircus Street Broken

With attitude-filled, perfectly harmonising vocals, Ciircus Street have been uniquely described in the past as a mixture of ‘salt and honey’. The contrasting, yet compatible nature of their voices gives the listener a taste of what’s yet to come from such raw potential.

The Reading based duo, consisting of Sam Brett (vocals/ guitar) and Jim Crowder (vocals/ keyboard), was formed one night in Oxford after walking past the city’s ‘Circus Street’. Both agreed it would make a good band name, but it wasn’t until later that night when they attended a gig and knocked back a few drinks, that the pair decided to form a duo.

Ciircus Street’s second single “Lost” has been streamed over 70,000 times on Spotify and they continue their success with a third single release titled “Broken”. “Broken is written from the perspective of someone who has just gone through a rough breakup in a relationship they knew they had to end …they were hurt, and it’s taken time to fully understand their state of mind…but it was the right decision” Jim Crowder.

Exploring the period of extreme vulnerability following the end of a difficult and meaningful relationship, in “Broken”, Ciircus Street have crafted a heartbreak song that manages to be both edifying and life-affirming too. While plucking tenderly on all the fibres of a heartstring with its nostalgic harmonies and extraordinary melodies, “Broken” doesn’t just focus on the painful visceral effects of break-ups, it’s also an acceptance of the situation and a sure-footed step towards recovery. With choruses so addictive they stick with you long after the track has stopped playing, and impassioned vocal performances from both Sam and Jim.

“Broken” channels inspiration from Ciircus Street influences like Lewis Capaldi and Kodaline, while at the same time making something undeniably bold, vital, and spirited.
