Civil Civic is the Melbourne-based project that involves Aaron Cupples (guitar, synth) and Benjamin Green (bass, synth). Five years later debut album Rules, they return with a new album scheduled for release this Autumn via Gross Domestic Product through Believe Digital.. “The Hunt” is the first excerpt that will be releases as single (out on 24th June). Listen below.
Concocted from the intrinsic production skills of Aaron Cupples and Benjamin Green, the Melbourne duo have spent the last four years honing their special recipe of colourful instrumentals from their bases in London and Barcelona, respectively. This first offering is a taste of what’s to come, a smorgasbord of aural delicacies made to take the listener on an unforgettable journey.
THE HUNT replicates the sensation of the day after a night of sensory (and chemically) overloaded hedonism. If you feel tumble-dried after this tune then it’s entirely deliberate. It’s supposed to be exhausting:
“You wake up late afternoon, your hair a mess,” offers Aaron of its origins. “You smell like a bin. Breakfast is the rest of the falafel from the night before. You’re volatile, energised, funny as fuck. You don’t give a single shit what others think of you.”
