Fleeting Circus: Rockers From Rio
Many of us have dreamed of doing something wild and adventurous in our lives like "running off and joining the circus". Brazilian rock/alternative quartet Fleeting Circus has done just that.
Born in Rio de Janeiro, the band makes a sound echoing the philosophy contained in its name. Even though they are influenced by classic and modern bands like Led Zeppelin and Muse, Fleeting Circus aims to create a unique sound for the beginning of the 21st century. The dissonance and earnest aspects of their sound are reminiscent of acts like Chore, Deftones, Jeff Buckley and Sunny Day Real Estate.
The new Dream World Of Magic EP has two songs that made history in the first edition of the Yamaha Brazilian Beat festival, "Fake Station" and "Underground".
Truly living up to their name, they are currently performing and touring with a traveling circus, the musical Unicirco Rock Show, playing their ambitious soon to be released original soundtrack in front of over 100,000 people so far, blending the powerful sound of guitars with the majestic flight of acrobats. On top of this instrumental release, Fleeting Circus also have a new full-length in the works and more tour dates on the way.
"Life Between Two Paper Sheets" has a very dreamlike quality that is almost magical. The guitar riffs have an almost Hendrix-like quality. The sound is hauntingly ethereal. Each song has a powerful vocal presence that everyone seems to balance out.
