‘Miss Second Place U​.​S​.​A​.​’ / ‘Like A Presidential Pardon (You Stop Me Mid​-​Sentence​)​’

by Wrong Circles

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Wrong Circles’ exceptional debut album A Gift For Disaster minted a sound that TotallyRadio described as...

    “Containing trace elements of Wire, Coil and early Roxy Music. Yet it’s all fused into something highly individual”.

    Now, Heaven’s Lathe is thrilled to be releasing two new songs from this singular ensemble.

    A-side: ‘Miss Second Place USA’ sees Wrong Circles take their unique blend of art-pop into fresh territory. With its swooning slide guitar arrangement, woozy horns and crooning vocal, it’s a classic piece of musical bricolage. Yet, despite the up-beat tone, the song’s lyrics are a meditation on the life of country singer and outspoken opponent of gay rights Anita Bryant. Wrong Circles show how pop’s boundaries can be stretched and warped, whilst still boasting hooks and seductive melodies.

    B-side: ‘Like A Presidential Pardon (You Stop Me Mid-Sentence)’ is a prime example of the kind of sample wrangling studio wizardry and smart, witty wordplay at which Wrong Circles excel. Blending pounding kettle drums, acoustic guitars, heavily processed electronics and church bells, here is a song with a truly cinematic sweep.

A grand? Not really. With this release we can't actually offer you the digital files. But BC rules mean we have to put a price here. Sorry.
