After a busy start to the summer and fast acclaim for their single Before, Leeds alt-rockers KOYO are back today with grungy new track Circles. This straight-ahead rock groove mixes well with a fuzzy alt-element that might remind you of a young Richard Ashcroft.

Exploring a fresh perspective that expands their broad sonic soundscape into a tight indie-rock framework, KOYO have announced a run of UK tour dates for later this year including shows in London, Birmingham, Leeds, Brighton and Manchester. Their sound has connected with fans around the world, and earned them top listings from Classic Rock Magazine, Prog Magazine, and Louder than War. The music video for their new release Circles hits the melodic counterpoint between a live feel and artistic exploration, with found-footage and an eye for the beautifully strange amid colorful shots of the band. Circles is a feel-good soundtrack for moments of pedestrian futility.
