Civic – “Hourglass”


At the top of the year, the Australian band Civic released their second album, Taken By Force, and they’re about to head out on a North American tour for the first time. To celebrate, they’re sharing a new one-off single called “Hourglass.” “Off the back of Taken By Force we wanted to create something new, an evolution of sound for us,” the band’s Jim McCullough said in a statement.

“We’d dropped down to a 4 piece so already Lewis had more space to come through with his guitar parts, be more experimental, less chaotic; more defined,” he continued. “Lyrically I am touching on aspects of change, more specifically the process during change. Going through some kind of shit and sediment and coming out the other side; a hopeful development of a refined version. We start again.”
