With attitude-filled, perfectly harmonising vocals, Ciircus Street have been uniquely described in the past as a mixture of ‘salt and honey’. The contrasting, yet compatible nature of their voices gives the listener a taste of what’s yet to come from such raw potential. The Reading based duo, consisting of Sam Brett (vocals/ guitar) and Jim Crowder (vocals/ keyboard), was formed one night in Oxford after walking past the city’s ‘Circus Street’. Both agreed it would make a good band name, but it wasn’t until later that night when they attended a gig and knocked back a few drinks, that the pair decided to form a duo.
Whilst Sam and Jim list notable artists such as Twenty One Pilots and Newton Faulkner as their inspirations, when it comes to writing music, the pair admit that they are in fact influenced significantly by each other. Consequently, it is clear to see the chemistry between the two which bounces off each other, forming Ciircus Street’s individual sound. Ciircus Street’s current single ‘Lost’ has been streamed over 60,000 times on Spotify.
