It’s a few years since I reviewed Squeaker’s “Fly Baby Fly” album, but I remember enjoying the week or so it spent on rotation in the car CD. When their new single “Circles” came up for review I was keen to hear how the band had progressed over the years, and I wasn’t disappointed.

Capturing the essence of the bands live sound, “Circles” is a mature rock song showcasing a band that is clearly at-ease with itself. Vocalist Georgii continues to deliver silky smooth vocals over the simple guitar/bass/drum backing that employs just enough additional effects and production without being over-engineered.

This is an infectious and enjoyable song about relationships that creeps up and grabs your attention, without resorting to obvious catchy hooks or repetitive riffs.
