This year, Circa Survive’s historic and monumental sophomore full length album, “On Letting Go”, turns 10 years old. To celebrate this decade of excellence, the band and Equal Vision Records have released 10 year anniversary editions of the classic record on CD, Digital, and vinyl formats and Circa Survive themselves are currently on tour playing this album in full. So, in order to continue the celebration, the track of the day and the track you need to check out today is the phenomenal “In the Morning and Amazing”.
“In the Morning and Amazing” perfectly embodies the distinct sound Circa Survive has established in their successful career. Sweet sounding, slightly distorted guitars create a melodic atmosphere filled with creative chord progressions and catchy lead sections. To accompany this, Nick Beard’s soothing bass guitar riffs perfectly intertwine with and compliment the artfully crafted guitar and percussion sessions. Finally, Anthony Green’s impressive high pitched vocal performance ties together the faster, more rock oriented sections with the more calm, almost ambient indie rock parts. “In the Morning and Amazing” pretty much summarizes the definition of a Circa Survive song. However, this song alone does not speak for the entire album, “On Letting Go”, and I highly suggest that you listen to the entire project today in order to truly enjoy the brilliance of Circa Survive.
Like usual, I’ve attached the link to “In the Morning and Amazing” below. Also, I’ve added the link to purchase the 10 year anniversary editions of “On Letting Go” for those who would like to own a copy! As I’ve mentioned before, we’re having a slow start to the year here at Erik’s Album Reviews, but I promise the momentum will start to shift into a more progressive state very soon as we still have multiple reviews and other posts in the works almost ready to share with you. Stay tuned!
