South African rocker trio Civil Twilight’s been in the studio working on a new album, set to release on March 13. The first single from the album, “Fire Escape,” dropped today and is available for download on their website (as of January 31, the single is also available on iTunes and Amazon).
If you haven’t had the pleasure of listening to or seeing these fellas live, you gotta make it a priority. They were an easy sell for me after seeing them perform live for the first time last year…Dark-tinged, moody rock, full of addictive bass lines, really sharp writing and killer vocals. They have not gotten enough exposure in the U.S., as far as I’m concerned…
If the new single is any indication of what’s to come on the album, I think fans are going to be happy. It’s a little more up tempo than some of their songs off their debut album released in 2010 (which, it should be noted, is only $5 at Amazon this month), but retains their stylistic haunting sound. Definitely worth dropping a buck on!
