New Music Video: Civil Twilight

It's hard to imagine what kind of culturally diffused rock might be coming out of Cape Town, South Africa, but the three-piece known as Civil Twilight is making a pretty good case for your attention. Their music is sticky and swift-footed, with an aesthetic that can only be described as some weird hybrid of the mass appeal of Brit-rock juggernauts and the frenetic pace of Brooklyn's youngest backroom acts (say that five times fast). Their name is pretty appropriate for the tunes, especially the title track from their sophomore LP Holy Weather, a dimly-lit slow-burner that, while polite, seems shrouded in shadow tones. The band moved from their native land to the grand ol' USA (Nashville specifically) to finish up their latest opus, and it's on fire.

Thus the video for "Fire Escape" is appropriate for their candor. Men in masks make swift movements amidst smoke and reddish hues as the band plays their tune. Check it out:
