With their outstanding album Amplify, released earlier this year, still drawing attention and acclaim the way of Tess of the Circle, the UK band’s new single just confirms its irresistible qualities and caps a major ground-breaking year for the Oxford hailing outfit.
Formed by and based around the songwriting singer/guitarist Tess Jones, Tess of the Circle is a collective of musical and creative talent which has really caught the wider imagination with second album Amplify, the striking successor to the equally well-received debut Thorns. With lead guitarist Lee Clifton, bassist Ben Drummond, and drummer Paul Stone alongside Jones on the Gavin Monaghan produced full-length and now the new single which comes from the, Tess of the Circle is awakening broader waves of eager appetites for their melody rich rock ‘n’ roll, something I’m Not Ashamed can only add impetus to.
There is a Numan-esque glaze to the initial feel of sound escaping the speakers and Jones’ emotively delivered vocals, a spice remaining to appeal as the track blossoms into a fiery blaze of blues kissed, grunge toned rock ‘n’ roll. Subsequent dips into mellow climes are built on the same eventful melodically suggestive enterprise which shapes the whole of the song, while the bolder feistier body of invention around them provides hazier almost psych rock spun waves of imagination to eagerly surf.
I’m Not Ashamed is one of the numerous treats making up Amplify and alone as their new single, a potent lure for newcomers to explore the increasingly impressive creative world of Tess of the Circle.
I’m Not Ashamed is out November 25th across most online stores.
