Civil Twilight's Soaring 'Holy Dove'

    Civil Twilight have long been Baeble favorites ever since they played our SXSW showcase in 2013. These South African alternative rock darlings are dropping their third record, Story of an Immigrant, July 10th on Wind-Up Records. We're premiering an acoustic version of "Holy Dove," one of the lead singles off the new record, and this stripped down, folksier take of the originally bluesy, propulsive number is absolutely beautiful. Letting Steven McKellar's soaring vocals take center stage and inviting the listener to get lost in the warmth of the vocal melody, this version of "Holy Dove" manages to sound as fresh and inviting as the already brilliant original. July 10th can't get here soon enough.

    And if you enjoy this new track, be sure to watch our session with the band at SXSW two years ago. It's impossible not to fall in love with Civil Twilight like we did.
