Audio sample

Warm Wet Circles is a song by the British neo-progressive rock band Marillion. It was the third single from their fourth studio album Clutching at Straws, released on 26 October 1987.

"Warm Wet Circles" peaked at number 22 in the UK Singles Chart, becoming the band's 9th top-thirty hit in a row, and remained on the chart for four weeks. The music video featured footage of the band's concert at Lorelei in West Germany on 18 July 1987. The b-side is a live recording of "White Russian", another track from Clutching at Straws also made during the Loreley concert (see Live from Loreley). The 12" version additionally contains a version of "Incommunicado" from this concert.

In Argentina, the single was published under the Spanish title "Círculos Húmedos y Cálidos".

A CD replica of the single was also part of a collectors box-set released in July 2000 which contained Marillion's first twelve singles and was re-issued as a 3-CD set in 2009 (see The Singles '82–'88).
