Totally original, energetic and even a little spooky in places … ‘Visiting Hours of a Travelling Circus’ is an absolute musical treat. Jam-packed with shotgun guitars and quirky vocal melodies; there simply isn’t a ‘bad’ song on this record – in fact, you’ll struggle to retain a favourite for more than a day.
Dynamics are the absolute key to this albums charm – at any given moment, your ears are either being distorted or being seduced by beautiful synth lines or softened guitars. The other crucial key is diversity. I encourage you to listen to the iTunes preview of this album – and you’ll find 30 second clips that show the songwriting progression from track to track.
