Here’s the first new Circular Keys song since the ‘Eurogrand’ 7 inch earlier this year, which featured material initially released in 2012. With that in mind, ‘Lite’ is the first evidence of how the Melbourne duo has developed since last year (unless you’ve seen them live). ‘Lite’ isn’t as dark as earlier tracks but it retains a kinda spectral melancholy more reminiscent of Balam Acab, Clams Casino et al. The RnB influences are more apparent, resulting in a sound that’s better suited to late night city skylines than the illusory dreamscapes of ‘Possessed’.
Circular Keys is touring next month through Tasmania, South Australia and Melbourne. ‘Lite’ can be purchased for download on Bandcamp.
