Single Review – Circa Waves – Stuck

Liverpool Indie quartet are to release their second album Different Creatures on March 10th and this week they’ve released a new single in ‘Stuck’. Their debut Young Chasers emerged with an average to mildly positive response and so you wonder where the difficult second album will fall. Based on this track, there is no new destination in the grand scheme of things as they churn out a sound worn thread bare over the last sixteen (yes, sixteen) years. What is frustrating about the growing heap of stagnant Indie groups is that not one of them sound better than or anywhere near as good as The Strokes, Kings of Leon, The Killers etc. They’re clearly talented enough and have a decent live sound, but it is difficult to see them and their many other clones as nothing more than glorified tribute act to a sound that had peaked in 2004.
