“We wanted to make a song that would get people moving, something full of rhythm, while also keeping it atmospheric and romantic.”

Says rising Bristol group and our friends Oslo Twins about their latest track “Circe”

After reading Madeleine Miller’s novel about the life of Circe, a minor goddess and sorceress in Greek mythology, Claudia was inspired to write “something witchy, something about her and about feminine sublimity. It’s sort of a love song, but it’s also about awe, aspiration, a kind of reckless longing that resembles worship.”

​Circe was played on BBC Music Introducing on 18 September.

“Our music is both melodic and melancholic but also subtly influenced by dance, industrial and lo-fi music of the 80s and 90s. But our melodies are pop melodies – we always like to have a hook.”

​In July the group released their debut single The Edge, which caught the attention of the likes of BC Camplight, So Young Magazine and Wax Music, and premiered on BBC Radio Bristol.
