Circe announces new EP ‘Drawing Wings From The Light’

She’s also released its lead single ‘Riot Of Sunlight’.

Circe has announced an EP, ‘Drawing Wings From The Light’. The seven-track EP is set to arrive on 14th July and a first taste of its sound has been shared in the form of lead single, ‘Riot Of Sunlight’. The song was written 10 years ago, while Circe was still a teenager, and the dark pop artist has said it is now seeing the light of day “all because of some magic I was blessed enough to encounter twice…” “When I was 15, completely by chance, I watched Jez Butterworth’s + Mark Rylance’s critically acclaimed play Jerusalem,” Circe said. “A week prior to this, I was disregarded by a frustrated science teacher as an ‘ungrateful fantasist obsessed with glamorising the occult’ — so when my wide eyed teenage self was witness to Jerusalem — a play and performance of such colossal, glorious, gigantic magic — my heart was completely derailed, and by the end of the play I existed on an entirely different plane to the one I walked in on. “The next morning I wrote the first incarnation ‘Riot of Sunlight’ - a disciple-like sonic ode to Jerusalem. “Skip forward 10 years I was feeling disillusioned, suffocating under a soulless corrupt government when Jerusalem — like the fucking marvel it is— unexpectedly returned to theatres and I watched again, as “a rainbow hit the earth + set fire to the ground” and in I finshed the song ‘Riot of Sunlight’.” Circe also co-produced the track alongside Steven Ansell of Blood Red Shoes.
