Seven Handle Circus - "And We Danced" (audio) (Premiere)

The newest tune by the Atlanta folk/pop outfit Seven Handle Circus, "And We Danced", perfectly balances pop harmony with bluegrass melancholy.

The Atlanta folk-poppers that call themselves Seven Handle Circus are yet another piece of evidence that reveals just how versatile the bluegrass instrumental lineup can be. With a guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, bass, and drums, the group creates harmony-centric pop that grabs the ear at first listen, all the while maintaining a rustic quality inherent to the instruments being played.

"And We Danced", a number from Seven Handle Circus' forthcoming full-length, Kickstarter-funded debut, Shadows on the Wall, is indicative of what the band is about. The interplay of this six-piece band creates a driving background to a longing, melancholic vocal in the chorus.

Guitarist and vocalist Shawn Spencer says of the tune, "’And We Danced’ is about a loss of innocence and a wave of disillusionment that is forgotten in a serene dance with a lover."


Shadows on the Wall is set for an October release date.
