Who? Aaron Cupples (guitar, noise) and Ben Green (bass, noise) aka Civil Civic
Yard? London and Barcelona
Sounds Like? Hmmm… we’re not quite sure.
Big Tune? Run Overdrive
Album? Run Overdrive/Fuck Youth available HERE. 1-EP available on iTunes.
Civil Civic first met in Australia, although Aaron Cupples lives in London and Ben Green is based in Barcelona. Yes, there is thousands of miles between them but they make it work.
What they do is create their own beats and tunes in their respective studios at home and then send the MP3s to each other. They repeat this process over and over until they get the complete song as they want it. They do, however, prefer to be called a ‘band’ because they say “it downplays their live electronic element in a way that seems ‘just’ and ‘good’ “. Once you have recognised the process they go through to create their sound, the genius of Civil Civic really comes out and you can appreciate what they achieve.
We think that the final product is absolutely genius. Both for its intricacy and its simplicity. The mix of the guitar/bass and the electro noise works perfectly together and creates music that you cant hep but bop your head and tap your feet to.
Their upcoming single Run Overdrive and Fuck Youth is the sort of stuff that will really get a party rocking. Check them out and have a listen for yourselves.
