With stacked guitar tones, anthemic choruses, and classic synths, it’s a song that comes ready made for any sunny day playlist. Beyond the general musical prowess, this is a song that oozes pure joy and fun. It feels good in a way would equally appeal to fans of John Fogarty and Tom Petty as it would to those of Zach Brown and Rascal Flatts. It’s a sunny summer party waiting to happen.

And that’s simply to say that it manages a delightful balance of southern vocals, twangy classic rock guitar tones, and funkadelic synths, in a way that brings both rock and country to the center of the table. Combined with the a story about youth, coming of age, and blazing a path, it’s sure to be anyone’s summer bop who gives it a listen. So be sure to check it out along with a gaggle of other songs off their latest EP “Once Again, Here’s…” which keeps the party going into an ever setting sun.

“Circle On The Sun” is available now on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. Find it on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify.
