CIVIL CIVIC

When Civil Civic unleashed their début single ‘Less Unless’ in the early months of 2010, it triggered a tsunami of panic and confusion that swept the blogoshpere. What sort of godless fruit-bats would MAKE that kind of music? Have they no HONOUR?.

Just as they were about to be siezed and turned over to the Pitchfork Police for cerebral re-programming, the “Civvies” followed it up with their latest double B-side anti-anthem ‘Run Overdrive’ / ‘Fuck Youth’.

When Civil Civic unleashed their début single ‘Less Unless’ in the early months of 2010, it triggered a tsunami of panic and confusion that swept the blogoshpere. What sort of godless fruit-bats would MAKE that kind of music? Have they no HONOUR?.

Just as they were about to be siezed and turned over to the Pitchfork Police for cerebral re-programming, the “Civvies” followed it up with their latest double B-side anti-anthem ‘Run Overdrive’ / ‘Fuck Youth’.

Mixing jaggedly progressive post-punk guitar, jamming melodic fuzz bass and pummelling drum machine beats, delivered in a no-frills lo-fi-pop package, these Europe-based Australian instrumentalists have tapped their own original sound, emailing tracks back and forward, reconstructing and tweaking the others contributions, and minimising the possibility of rehearsal room punch-ups.

Shunning vocals to make more room for their soaring distortions, Civil Civic rejected the idea of a front man and instead created ‘The Box’. Part evil drum machine, part hobo light-show, all road-case, The Box completes the Man-Machine tryptic.

It seems that with their grisly arsenal of melody, noise, tricky bits, thuggy bits and that big horse-syringe full of type-O FUN, they’re determined to cement their reputation as “the thinking persons party band”, whatever the cost to themselves, music or humanity at large. « hide
