Album Notes
1. They used to be called Opanoni & the Raindrops so if you hated them, you’ll probably hate Circle too.

2. As Opanoni they released two albums through MGM. The first was Stamps & Coins and the second was EGBDF. Both releases received a heap of media attention. Google it!

3. Their debut release as Circle (Just Keep Swimming), was released through their own label, Monday Records and dropped in May 2008. It’s currently distributed by the lovely people at Creative Vibes. Having a good distributor really helps.

4. The album release was supported with a modest East Coast tour and the album was launched in conjunction with the first annual zine fair at the MCA in Sydney. Very arty.

5. When people buy their CD at shows (the boys have been gigging for a couple of years now), they always seem to get asked how come they’re not famous yet? That’s by no means a reflection of their tight set. If anything it’s about as sloppy as indie pop can get. It must be something else...

6. They’ve been compared with the likes of Cat Stevens, Ben Folds, Death Cab & The Beatles. They’d like to be compared to The Flaming Lips, the Eels, Sufijan Stevens & The Magnetic Fields.

7. The three permanent members are Radi Safi (vox, keys and kaos pad), Dion Casey (guitar and pretty much anything he can get his grubby little hands on) and Dan Shaw (bass).

8. They run a small studio in Enmore (Radi fancies himself a bit of a producer), in the very building where Ivy League (aka Winterman and Goldstein), used to have their office. Hoping and praying some of those good vibes will rub off? Radi lives upstairs.

9. Since April 2008 they’ve been recording and releasing a song a week digitally through myspace and the Monday Records site. This project is also emailed to a heap of industry via the Monday Records e-Zine. They feel that some of their best material to date has come out of these sessions.

10. A lot of people think they’re very good looking (admittedly this feedback comes mostly from lonely men on myspace who say things like “Wow, I really lurve your music. So... what’s your name?”)
