Cymbals sure know how to put on a good live show and their follow-up to last year’s ‘Unlearn’ is just as good. It was recorded on a boat too, amazing.

Soul Circus release their double A-side, ‘Burn The Map’/The Consequence of Youth’ this week and it was a good choice of songs to showcase what they are capable of. Hailing from Leeds, the band previously played the prestigious Reading and Leeds Festival back in 2010. Since then they’ve been enticing more followers in their hometown, as well as the rest of the country with their tight line-up and driven performances.
‘Burn The Map’s slow start resembles The Killers in its timid riffs that are soon overshadowed by the reliable vocal – the sort that’s always there as the ‘voice’ of the group and never fails in its distictive presence. ‘Everyone wants it all’ sings Lloyd Bradley. They certainly do. ‘The Consequence of Youth’ is the stronger of the pair, no slow starters it’s straight in with the crunch. The beat definitely helps to get the song off to an active start, with the ravishing chorus that stands as a bonus.
The five-piece clearly want to give their release a personal touch for their fans. The release comes as a double pack, so you can keep one and give the other to your favourite friend/relative/being. Oh and the first batch come with a Swizzels Matlow Double Dip – remember those?
Soul Circus have a long way to go until their selling out large venues. But depending on the reception for their forthcoming EP and their determination, they could be selling out the big tops in the future.
