Squall Marks A New Trajectory In Band’s Complex, But Soulful Musical Direction
Kingston Springs, Tennessee, United States of America – April 23th, 2014 – Fans of Dark Circles’ first album, One Golden Day (2012), won’t have to wait much longer for the much anticipated sequel, Squall. New album Squall, set to be released on May 1st, 2014, is a direct result of a move from husband and wife songwriting duo Pat and Celeste Millius from Nashville to Cheatham County, Tennessee.
Dark Circles’ music is best described by Pat Millius, who calls the band’s music “a woozy mélange of pop styles, from the sunshine harmonies of Brian Wilson, to Joni Mitchell’s jazzy meditations, to the retro-pop groove of Sergio Mendez & Brazil ’66; all shaded in deep blue undertones.”
Listening to One Golden Day and Squall, the influence of many musicians is clear, but more impressive is how all those influences have been mixed together to create something new — something that is more than the sum of its parts and influences.
Pat and Celeste Millius have been joined by Duane Spencer (vocals, percussion), and the album presents a style that’s not just sunny, but with deep emotional undertones. To celebrate the launch of Squall, the band will be playing two gigs in Nashville on the following dates at the following locations:
May 2nd 2014 – The Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Nashville (details)
May 3rd 2014 – International Pop Overthrow, The End, Nashville (details)
The music of the Dark Circles is available to purchase at Amazon, iTunes, CDBaby, EMusic and all other good online vendors.
