Civic has today released their new video for the track titled ‘Hourglass’. With parts from So-Cal ’90s punk and noisy garage band shenanigans, Civic slide it right in the pocket with and angst anthem for the post pandemic apocalypse.

Musically, the guitar leads the way with an ode to evolution, both personal and sociological, hoping for a better self while acknowledging the typical bullshit from the outside world. While done brilliantly, musically and lyrically, you are left to contemplate as well as give it another listen. Isn’t that what good music does?

About Civic & ‘Hourglass’

CIVIC have reimagined the reckless intensity of proto-punk for an era of endless uncertainty. On the heels of their acclaimed album Taken By Force released earlier this year on ATO Records, they are thrilled to bring their blistering live show to stages across the US for the FIRST TIME ever this fall. One of the most exhilarating bands to emerge in recent years, the Melbourne-based act made their name as a captivating live act defined by masterfully controlled chaos, embarking on a European tour earlier this year. Their frenetic live show will serve up a vital new energy, joyfully obliterating the line between furious catharsis and unbridled fun. The tour will include stops in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Seattle and more as well as appearances at LEVITATION Festival and Gonerfest.

Hailed by Sterogum as “an unholy lo-fi pile-up of garage rock, punk, and ’90s-style noise-rock,” CIVIC have unleashed their blistering new single “Hourglass” alongside an official video today. Frontman Jim McCullough shares, “Off the back of Taken By Force we wanted to create something new, an evolution of sound for us. 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. 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”.
