EYELIDS have turned inwards to their loves of New Zealand/Flying Nun guitar buzz , their teenage L.A. paisley underground obsessions, haunts of early Athens and all things beautiful, lopsided and rock. We give you fair warning.
Laptop pop by an old guy who keeps staring at his shoes. 25 years of learning how to write a song, quite a few years to go.

The Cherry Wave
A Shoegaze band from Glasgow, Scotland who employ blissed-out dense fuzz drones, reverberated hypnagogic vocals and hazy echoes as their sonic trademark. Since 2012 they’ve shared the stage with many bands, including Ringo Deathstarr, Swervedriver, No Joy, Pinkshinyultrablast, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, The Telescopes, The KVB, Nothing, Paws, Milk Teeth, and countless more.
Trium Circulorum is an artist name but also a platform for other musicians, a place for collaborations and creative endeavours of many kinds. I have formerly been active as 3dtorus and I am still active under the monikers Kanal Drei and Third Witness. From 2014 to 2016 I operated the netlabel Mobius Spin.
Trium Circulorum was started as a cassette tape (and accompanying digital) release project, not because of a vague sense of retrophilia but out of the love for analog noise, randomness, glitches and saturation.
Trium Circulorum has developed into an informal and open space, grown and composed of different and changing people. The self-released tapes on the Bandcamp page are strictly limited to small and mostly DIY editions. There have been numerous appearances on labels such as Still Heat Recordings, Concrete Tapes, Fwonk* Records and Romeda Records.
Sound artist/musician based in TX. Here’s Andrew reflecting on his new album Velvet Fjord:
The album is about the cycle of life and afterlife. track 1 is birth/awakening. Track two is life/struggle. Track three is death/acceptance. Velvet Drone is inspired by the Bardo, hence 47 minutes long to reflect the 47 years of being in the Bardo, and therefore, rebirth. That is why it starts with ocean recordings and ends with cicadas.
