The Manx alt-rock duo Circus WorlD are due to imminently release the EP The Deceiver.
The first track to appear from the release being the fuzzy-rock number High that fizzes with the static-electricity of the guitar set against a menacing voice which give the song a dark oppressive air in to which the listener eagerly accepts invitation to enter the dimly lit doorway and head down the narrow steep staircase to discover what other delights lay in store in the rest of The Deceiver.
Circus worlD, an alt-rock duo from the Isle Of Man, released the EP – The Burning Well E.P. this month.

Having lain dormant for over a decade Mark Sayle and Mikie Daugherty (who you may well recall is in Postcode got together with an idea for a song. Finding they were enjoying the process one song became more songs resulting in the release of The Burning Well E.P. . A release that is available on bandcamp as either a five track digital EP or as a ten track CD LP.
In either version – the opening track is Black Swan.
Isvisible from Douglas in the Isle Of Man is an experimental-drone solo project.
Before hitting play ensure you have plenty of time to listen to Isvisible. A prolific creator of experimental electronica with seventeen LPs, encompassing one hundred and thirty two compositions and – released this month – a ten track retrospective, all from a standing start in April of last year.
The sounds bend their way around the head in loops and divergences which entrance the mind as tempo and temperament shifts throughout the pieces, which can extend from around the three minute mark to well in excess of ten.
Although the compositions are testing new waters, there is a calmness to the sounds which makes for tracks which have a surprising semanticity, despite being bereft of vocal.
It would be possible to write far more, but it is best heard to appreciate the spacious kaleidoscope that is Isvisible.
