Soul Circus–‘Burn The Map/The Consequence of Youth’ AA Single Review (Sound People Records) Released 14 May, 2012

First I have heard of the five piece indie rock band. Pleased I took the time. The bands influences are there in parts, but overall the honest, sombre (note not doom_laden) style is tight guitars with hook filled anthemic choruses of both songs presented here, beguile> Many a night could be spent in Northern cities and towns, with Consequence Of Youth’ providing the soundtrack, mixing with bright lights and staggered foot fall. Of the two songs, have to admit leaning slightly towards ‘Burn The Map; which is is somehow more direct and immediate.

‘Burn The Map’ was produced by Whiskas (formerly of Forward Russia); ‘The Consequence Of Youth’ was recorded with Mark Ellis at Propagation House, Devon (The Subways, The View) states the press release; I offer this as further evidence of the band and record label, Sound People’s intent. Which I suggest they have achieved with this double A side single, focused northern indie rock that wears down the cynic in me, fair to say both tracks have won me over. Look forward to the second EP due later this year, but as Exhibit A’s go, place this single in the Interesting file. 7.5/10
