Today Billy Sherwood from Circa (and formally of Yes) tells us about the title track from their brand new album "And So On". Here is the story:
"And So On" is the 1st track from the record and sets the template for what's to come. It's a musical adventure which takes many twists and turns. The idea of the song is that no matter the odds one must always look forward and move towards the future and so on.
CIRCA: is known for experimenting with musical arrangements, time signatures and dynamics along with lush vocals and harmonies, this track lives up to that reputation and then some.
The lyrics and melodies are intriguing and thematic, Billy Sherwood's vocals have become a trademark sound within CIRCA: and guide you through the various musical landscapes. Billy also plays bass and commands the position with authority and grace. Tony Kaye brings years of musical experience to the band and provides the texture and backdrops for the record with soaring, atmospheric keyboards and of course his trademark roaring Hammond Organ. Johnny Bruhns plays amazing guitars throughout, tasty, energetic and melodic playing making Johnny a serious force to be reckoned with. Ronnie Ciago takes the drumming to a whole new level. CIRCA: contains 4 virtuosos and at the same time they act as one for the music, the give and take between all 4 makes the music fly and soar, it is a testament to their ability to yield to the other guy for the greater good of the whole. It's truly a shared musical experience by the band and by proxy the listener.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
