Circa Waves Unveil Video For “Sad Happy”

Circa Waves today unveil the video for “Sad Happy”, the eponymous first single from the Sad side of their forthcoming album Sad Happy (release on March 13, 2020). A banging, soulful track that drives along strummed chords and keyboard riffs, it’s another  example of Kieran Shudall’s ever developing songwriting, perfectly encapsulating the uptempo yet emotional tensions that cut right to the heart of the album Sad Happy. The video is directed by fast rising duo Bousher & Gee, and sees Shudall in the middle of a One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest-esque nightmare. Cutting between performance footage and the story of Schudall’s descent as one of a group of heartbroken clowns going through increasing twisted therapy sessions, the video tracks his hellish inner turmoil and the brutal ‘treatment’ that eventually leads him to the point of no return.

‘I will not find myself tonight

You can’t see my heart’s made of concrete

You know me, I’m sad happy’
