Circle Bros is in fact a one-man band. Wim does everything, which started late 1997 as a bedroom project. He has released a handful of full length tapes and eps on morc, as well as a split 12" with zent one, a collaboration with karina esp and a bunch of compilation appearances.

after moving back to belgium in 2006, circle brothers became circle bros. wim started doing more song-based improvisations, or more likely, improvising songs - think of likeminded artists as mick turner, roy montgomery, pefkin, grouper or even castanets.

however, the output stayed as low/slow as in the circle brother days. there was one tape-ep on morc, and a collab with old friends karina esp and drekka.

a few releases were piling up, and that results in a string of new releases in 2010 - a 3" on the bluesanct sublabel orphanology, and the lp 'haven' on morc.



Annelies Monseré/circle bros: "split 7" "
7" - released nov 20th 2012

Annelies and Wim have been living together for about 10 years. From the moment they moved in together they became a big indirect influence on
each others work. In Annelies’ case, this resulted in the use of more effects and writing guitar-based songs. Whereas Circle Bros drifted away from being a guitar-oriented drone entity. Listeners who pay attention will hear plenty of similarities .
