Circumnavigate reveal new single ‘Another 20 Seconds’!

For fans of… The Cinematic Orchestra, Of Monsters And Men, Sigur Rós, Billie Marten

“…a finely honed, carefully contoured piece of acoustic pop…”
– Clash

 “…graceful and undeniably compelling.” – Folk Radio UK

 

“…it’s a soul-soothing soundscape…” – M Magazine

Dream-folk quartet Circumnavigate prepare for another beautifully compelling release with their new single, Another 20 Seconds, out now and available to stream on Spotify.

The single premiered on M Magazine and is also available to stream on Circumnavigate’s Soundcloud page.

The single was inspired by lead singer Sigrid Zeiner-Gundersen‘s reading of the romantic novel ‘Me Before You’ by Jojo Moyes. Sigrid explains “The theme throughout is that longing to have more time with the one you love. We actually wrote the song with the intention of pitching it to the movie adaptation, but we never finished it in time. Turns out we really enjoyed the creation and it has become the lead single from our debut album.” Another 20 Seconds is a stunning piece of alt-folk, filled with cinematic soundscapes akin to the likes of The Cinematic Orchestra and Sigrid’s delicate, warm vocal complementing the musicality perfectly.

Sigrid (vocals/production) met Carl Frederik Kontny (piano/guitar/vocals) at school in Sandvika, Norway, where they would perform covers in school talent competitions. Sigrid later moved to London to study music and met Ross Craib (percussion/vocals) and Charlie Fowler (bass/vocals) through mutual friends. Between them, Circumnavigate have collectively played for some of London’s most respected artists including FoxesAdam LambertSigalaRomansGabrielle AplinMaverick Sabre and Crystal Fighters to name but a few. They have also been supported by the likes of Music WeekClashFolk Radio UK and BBC Introducing Devon, as well as being involved in numerous Hollywood productions for the purposes of music to film.
