'So Long' is only the third single from Circa Waves, although it somehow feels as if we've heard enough to fill an album, but this one's not quite on par with their typical indie-pop anthems.
Fast paced? Yes. Guitars? Plenty. Upbeat? Check. But despite having most of these usual Circa Waves qualities, it doesn't feel quite right, having more football match chanting than catchy, can't-get-it-out-of-my-head choruses.
They may well have veered off course with the content, and in all fairness, there are only so many times you can bash out a melodic riff before it gets repetitive; but they're by no means short of energy.
