UK Artist of the Week: Circe’s Diner

This week’s Artist of the Week is Bristol-based duo Circe’s Diner. The pair’s captivating blend of alt-folk is both enchanting and powerful, and their new single “Who Dares” will easily find a place in your Summertime “chill” playlist.

Beginning completely a cappella, Rosina Buck’s sweet, husky tone and Bronte Shande’s warm, colourful vocal blends together effortlessly, immediately filling you with an undeniable sense of joy. Their minimalist style and mesmerizing harmonies are simply all you need for this soft, intricate hug of a song.

In tandem with the beautiful musicianship the song also pushes a strong message of being brave, despite all the sorrows that life can throw at you. This empowering message feels all the more moving combined with their twinkling alt-folk melodies and relatable lyrics such as “So drink wine with me, until it turns light and who knows, this time it might turn out alright.”

Having met whilst studying at BIMM Bristol in 2014, Circe’s Diner has gone from strength to strength. They have supported the likes of Let’s Eat Grandma and On Pop! as well as playing Glastonbury and Boomtown Festival previously. This year, they are on the road again, playing an array of UK festivals including Arctangent, Smoked and Uncut, and Boomtown to name but a few.

“Who Dares” is in stores now via Rough Kitchen Records.
