hmv's Next Big Thing... #280 CIRCE
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you glacial bringer of darkness, CIRCE...
Who Is She?
CIRCE is the moniker chosen by Londoner Alexa Povey. Making music since 2018, she's been slowly putting out well-received tracks, and now, her debut EP, She's Made Of Saints, arrives at the end of November.
What Does She Sound Like?
Povey talks up the scores of David Lynch's work as well as artists like Grimes and Bat For Lashes, and you can definitely hear all of those things. This is brooding, overwhelming and ethereal electronica, but with a spiky underbelly.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Povey makes intoxicating and intricate pop, well worth anyone's time.
Can I Hear Something?
Absolutely. 'Ruin Your Sons' is below for you:
