Ciircus Street Are About To Make Their Way To Your Playlist With ‘Mouth Like That’

Written by Rahoul Naik

indie-pop duo, Ciircus Street, are firmly putting their stamp on the current world of popular music by introducing themselves with their debut single, Mouth Like That, which is based on the notion of lies, spreading rumours and the karma that inevitably comes with it.

Consisting of Sam Brett (vocals/guitar) and Jim Crowder (vocals), the duo was formed one night in Oxford after walking past the city’s ‘Circus Street’. Both the boys 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 and the rest as they say, is history.

‘Mouth Like That’ is an attitude-filled, acoustic guitar led track executed with conviction and the perfectly harmonising vocals of Sam and Jim, which in the past have been uniquely described as a mixture of ‘salt and honey’, displaying the contrasting, yet compatible nature of their voices. With an expertly crafted balance of dynamics throughout the song, the young duo have proved their song writing abilities which belie their years.

When discussing the concept behind the song, the pair noted that “Lyrically, the story follows the idea of someone who spreads rumors – someone I guess you could say is a compulsive liar, whether being in a friend group, or what not. But it’s about how that can come round to bite you. It’s our flagship song and one we’ve kept since the beginning and still enjoy playing. It’s had some great feedback from people too, and I feel it is the direction our music will take. Although we have songs within different styles, it all stays under our sound.”

Ciircus Street will also be heading out on tour during July, performing at the following venues:


July 18th         Ronnie Scotts, London

July 20th         Apples & Pears, London

July 31st          The Bedford, London
