THE TEST, il nuovo album dei Civil Civic, uscirà il 14 Ottobre via Gross Domestic Public, dopo l'uscita del singolo "The Hunt".
The new album, THE TEST is a sound mirror held up to the soul, reflecting back both the beauty and ugliness. It is, guitarist Aaron Cupples explains, “an emotional rollercoaster, with all the teeth-grinding joy and unbridled fear that can be experienced by a self-aware lump of meat flying through space.” It is, he elaborates, “a systematic dance inquiry into the epicentre of the human psyche.”
Australians in European exile, Aaron Cupples and Benjamin Green’s debut album Rules was a cerebral soundtrack to the best party on the planet. Based between London and Barcelona respectively, CIVIL CIVIC are a soundtrack band, but instead of scoring films, it is the human experience for which they are creating music. We could bandy certain genre-tags around at this point - futurist prog, epic math-rock, electro-goth, post-rock, glacier-sized chillwave – but none squarely hit the mark. Let’s just note that CIVIL CIVIC’s architecture is comprised of serotonin-drenched soundscapes, synth arpeggios, digital crescendos and deep bass troughs. It is post-punk rendered with a classicist’s touch; perhaps ‘post-everything’ might be a better description. And while in their sound surely lays the spirit of artists such as The Cure, Goblin, My Bloody Valentine, Battles, Bauhaus, Lightning Bolt and Fuck Buttons, CIVIL CIVIC are on their own journey.
Concocted from the intrinsic production skills of Aaron Cupples, (who has produced, mixed and engineered artists including The Vaccines, Miles Kane, Broken Social Scene, Dominique Young Unique, Blanck Mass, Spiritualized etc.) and Benjamin Green (whose previous musical endeavours have seen tours with the likes of Fugazi, and gigs shared with White Stripes and Queens of the Stone Age) CIVIL CIVIC have spent the last four years honing their special recipe of colourful, genre-defying instrumentals, including raising 176% of their Indiegogo campaign goal to fund THE TEST’s creation.
