Minneapolis based The Farewell Circuit are Danny O´Brien - Vocals/Guitars, DJ House - Guitars, Alex Young - Drums and Matt O´Brien - Bass. Their debut EP was released in 2007 which was followed by 2 full length albums in 2009 and 2011 plus 2 more EP´s where "We were wolves" is their latest release. You can definitely say they´re influenced by Death Cab For Cutie and Radiohead but I would like to add a few more bands they remind of such as Mae, Umbrellas and Copeland. We´re talking dreamlike pop here with spacey guitars and beautiful melodies, the title track is a really nice opener but I prefer the 2nd track "Years of youth" and "Faces of friends" a bit more. The music grows for each time I hear it which is a good thing because that only shows The Farewell Circuit makes thoughtful lyrics and songs with depth. Good stuff.
