Feelgood alt-pop work, which contributes towards rather than detracts from an enjoyable debut. Anthem-esque with clever lyrics.

About


Empire Circus are a four piece Alt Pop outfit who have tapped into the panache of Two Door Cinema Club, the demeanor of Arcade Fire and the general cool suave of Gorillaz… then morphed out at the other side with a resonant sound under the guise of Empire Circus. 

Having lived and played music full time in the USA together for 7 years, they returned to Ireland in 2008 opened a Music School in South County Dublin - www.puremusic.ie. Then in the spring & summer of 2012 the band spent time writing, demoing and working feverishly on creating music. They wrote some songs. Actually they wrote lots of songs. Some they really enjoyed playing, others... not so much. So they took the fun ones and went to a studio in Brooklyn and crafted an album of 12 tunes that made them want to pull some pretty ridiculous dance moves. This was all done under the influence of Producer/Engineer/Mixer; Bryce Goggin (Ramones, The Morning Glories, Antony and the Johnsons). 

Empire Circus’ sound is all about the thrill in rhythm and melody. Their debut album, including songs such as “A Day in the Life of a Superhero”, “I Know Better” and “All I Need” will assuredly leave you powerless against the urge to get up, get crazy, dance and sing like you never have before. 

Band statement: The Future (the end is nowhere in sight): We still have dreams of conquering the world and selling the t-shirt, but for now we will be bringing dodgy dance moves and above all, music that electrifies the soul.

Empire Circus’ self-titled debut album is OUT NOW.
