Hailing from Kent, UK, independent alternative rock group Black Circles come suited up with loud guitars and good song structure on their new single “Playing Games”. The trio is certainly solid, taking cues from bands like the Foo Fighters, early Smashing Pumpkins, and the power pop genre. The band teamed up with Iluzija Animation Studio for the track’s video, which stars “a disillusioned teddy bear trying to make it as a new music promoter.” It’s always commendable when an artist follows a pattern outside the norm, and this is definitely a good move, straying from the typical live band format and heading deep into animation narratives. Check out “Playing Games” below. Be sure to follow the band on their Facebook page.
