County Durham rock ‘n’ roll quintet, Circa 69 are a band who aim to blend the classic 60s blues-rock sound with a modern twist. They are heavily influenced by the likes of Pink Floyd and Rory Gallagher attracting both those who like classic rock and those who just like a good rock band that give it some. In December their second single  ‘Sonder’ was used by the BBC for the Snooker World Championship Final on BBC2 in a live montage. Their third single, throwing stones comes out today and we’re delighted to be given an exclusive look at the video that accompanies it. Here, the band tell us a little more about it.

‘Throwing Stones’ was filmed at The Garage Studios, South Shields – a fantastic local studio which is run by musicians themselves. As well as providing top-notch rehearsal rooms they provide media services such as the studio video package we used. Included in this is a full day of recording audio and video to preference of the band. We have used the same setup for three songs now, each with great results – because the lads who run the studio are both good crack and very professional. This lyrics and melodies are written by Dan Leak, and the theme of the song is a tongue in cheek really – discussing undesirable habits throughout the lyrics. The music aims to draw influence from the likes of Black Sabbath and Thin Lizzy in the two guitar approach with a shuffle groove chorus. ‘
