"Once it gets too fancy I started losing the groove," says guitarist Mike Sullivan of Russian Circles' deceptively dense music. Indeed the Chicago based post-rock band are capable of creating intricately layered pieces of music, often from simple, intertwining melodies that when combined are capable of creating harsh soundscapes, vast acoustic caverns, and everything in between.
When I talked to Russian Circles guitarist Mike Sullivan about the blossoming post-rock scene back in late May, I mentioned in passing that I thought if any band was the next from that scene to blow-up, it might very well be them.
When we recently caught up with Russian Circles to chat about the state of post-rock in Chicago, the band had just entered the studio to begin work on the follow-up to 2009’s Geneva. GuitarWorld.com was able to break the news of a new Russian Circles album this week, and now we bring you the full interview with Russian Circles guitarist Mike Sullivan.
