CROATIA – a synth-pop group from Victoria, British Columbia share their video for their new single, Make Circles. Taking heavy influence from the revolutionary sounds of 80’s era pop and electronic groups, they create at times a darker – alternative to conventional pop music.
It is the first track off their forthcoming EP Half Dreams set to be released this spring. They describe it as “a song celebrating the ridiculous and cliché moments of intimacy that we often end up in despite our best efforts, and the potentially beautiful outcomes that they might offer. We wanted to reflect those themes in the video as simply as possible, while keeping each scene and visual engaging. Rob Willey at Tall Grass Films understood our vision from the very beginning, and really encouraged us to run with the idea.
The writing and recording process behind “Make Circles” was a quick and natural one for us, along with our decision to release the song alongside its visuals. The theme of last minute decision making, and trust in how things will actualize, truly runs throughout the entirety of the song. Whether it’s trusting that a new relationship is worth pursuing, or that 4 hours with a group of strangers, cheap cigarettes, and a small garage in the peak of summer will result in something worth sharing with people.”
