‘The Compass’, combines musical influences from technically minded bands such as Periphery and Textures, whilst simultaneously drawing lyrical and vocal comparisons to the early works of Incubus and Faith No More.
Mixing up cutting edge production techniques with some altogether killer guitar work, Australian band CIRCLES emerge as their own distinct entity, instantly standing head and shoulders from the Metal-by-numbers crowd with their incalculably catchy song-craft, melodic structures and lyrical designs.
"Effortlessly striking a balance between muso-stroking technical facility and crowd-pleasing accessibility - resulting in a record that could well vault them into superstar status. 4.5/5
