A second new song from Circa Survive, hot on the heels of “Schema

Circa Survive - Only The Sun screencap

Hot on the heels of last week’s baby-bashing video for “Schema” – the first new material from Circa Survive‘s forthcoming album Descensus – another new slice of the pie has landed in the form of “Only The Sun“.

There’s a video, but it’s a bit more abstract than the previous one; shapes and colours, and generally a bit more floaty.

That’s sort of apt, actually; where “Schema” hit like a sack of potatoes, “Only The Sun” has a little more of an On Letting Go feel to it. It’s ‘floatier’, if that makes sense; Anthony Green’s voice carries a lot of the melody, whilst the guitars hover around making long, delay-ridden noises in much the same fashion as ”Kicking Your Crosses Down”  and “All Your Friends Are Gone“.

I like it, but I don’t love it. Then again, I’m sleep-deprived and hungry, and my nappy needs changing.

Descensus is out in just under three weeks on November 24th via Sumerian Records. We still can’t quite figure that one out, but good on them.
