We play Rock & Roll with thought-provoking lyrics and Celtic musical nuances. Sometimes it's heavy, doom, and dirge. Sometimes it's melodic and wistful. Sometimes it's uplifting and joyous. Our focus when creating a song lies in the idea, feeling, and flow of the concept, not adhering to some musical genre.
Melancholy Circus takes the boiled-down essence of influences from a life lived and examined, from music, literature, history, and cinema and creates plains of dissimilar existence and deep caves of thought that touch upon the dark irony of life.
Unafraid to reveal, view, and display the beauty in all things, Melancholy Circus creates visuals and soundscapes of desire, love, life, hope, and lament. Every song is different and every song is tied together. The name Melancholy Circus is the juxtaposition of dissimilarities, and isn't that what life truly is when you stop looking on the bright side and start looking at all sides.
