You know what's great about music? When a façade crumbles (perhaps you were fooling yourself all along) and it hurts like hell—well music is the hug and whiskey chaser that can make the sting a little less tart. Either that or it can make you wallow in your angst for a little bit longer—but there's merit in that too. This song isn't really about any of that, but it's the kind of melancholic (alt-country angled) indie-pop that's applicable to whatever you mood might be in. My status update is currently: "BUMMED OUT," but "Circle Lines" is gently optimistic.
Formed at college in Nashville back in 2011, The Lonely Biscuits had this to say about the song: "The lyrics are inspired by both old and new relationships and how we are drawn to people who make us feel the same way we do when we're pursuing a passion. We've been playing this song live for about a month and it's one of our favorites in the set."
Cue—you should proabably go see them live where you too can participate in a warm hug chased with a glass of neat whiskey. Thanks guys.
