Circa Waves cover Ellie Goulding’s ‘Love Me Like You Do’ – watch

The band will tour the UK throughout April

Circa Waves have covered Ellie Goulding’s ‘Love Me Like You Do’.

Click below to watch the band’s own version of the track, which was recorded for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge earlier today (March 31).


Circa Waves released their debut album ‘Young Chasers’ yesterday (March 30). Recorded over last summer at London’s RAK studios, it features singles ‘Fossils’ and ‘So Young’. Speaking about the album, frontman Kieran Shudall commented: “Circa Waves songs are born out of huge frustration and a twisted nostalgia. Leaving school at 16, working shitty low paid jobs, playing in bands and not even registering on anyone’s radar. Maybe never. So that’s why the album now is talking about those experiences because we feel like we have a forum to talk about that looking back.”

Circa Waves will tour the UK next month, visiting Glasgow, Sheffield, Nottingham, Birmingham, Portsmouth and Manchester as well as a homecoming gig at Liverpool Academy and a headline show at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London.

Circa Waves recently appeared on the NME Awards Tour with Austin, Texas alongside Interpol, Royal Blood and Temples. The band also supported The Libertines at their Alexandra Palace shows in London.

Newcastle Riverside (April 8)
Glasgow Garage (9)
Sheffield The Leadmill (10)
Liverpool Academy (11)
Nottingham Rescue Rooms (13)
Birmingham Library at The Institute (14)
