FRESH: ‘Shy Love’ – Circumnavigate

Circumnavigate release “Shy Love”

London based band Circumnavigate are back with a brand new single that’s released today! “Shy Love” is the second single from the bands upcoming EP. The captivating love song follows a blooming relationship where feelings are strong, mutual and obvious, yet totally unspoken – two lovers, too shy to confess their feelings but content with it nonetheless.

The song was written in lockdown, with the band writing everything over video calls and file transfers and fully produced ‘in house’ by lead singer Sigrid Zeiner. “Shy Love” follows on from the bands last single “Layer You Up”, which received industry wide success landing in three of Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ playlists as well as multiple large editorial playlists. The song was also championed by Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing who supported and continue to support the song on their radio shows.

Circumnavigate are an Oslo hailing dream-pop 4 piece, now all based in London. The band showcase a unique blend of Nordic dream pop mixed with modern influences such as Bon Iver and Billie Eilish which has allowed them to carve their own way through the genre and claim their space. The band have been busy working remotely through lockdown in the UK putting these songs together and it is exciting for them to be able to finally release them to the world. They have been organically growing their loyal fanbase for a while and continue to make a name for themselves in the genre. The band are regularly promoted and fea-tured by other artists such as Dodie and have solid relationships with their industry peers.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
