Hey everyone! I hope your Memorial Day weekend was awesome and filled with grilled food! This week I'm going to introduce you to a great band called Civilian. I first heard of these guys from a friend of mine in a band called Standing Small (they're having the Civilians singer record their album. I'll probably do a feature on them in the future). As soon as I listened to the song "Should This Noose Unloosen" I was blown away. I first heard it while watching the music video and was so enamored by the story of the song/video together. For me, it's hard to find a song (or any artistic piece for that matter) to really make me feel something. Civilian has found a way to do that with most of their album. I was a little surprised when I listened to the rest of the album. They were a little more pop than I was expecting, and then a little more rock, and then a little more of everything else. They blend so many styles together, and they do it well.
This video is for "Should This Noose Unloosen." I suggest dedicating yourself to the story of the song and the video without any distraction. I think you'll instantly fall in the love with the artistry of it all. Do you guys have any songs/videos that you can always turn to?
Hope you enjoyed this week. You can find their album on itunes and Spotify. I just recently started using Spotify, and I can't believe how great it is.
