Civil Twilight – River (Single Review)

This Nashville, originally Cape Town, four piece has the unnerving depths and warbles of Jeff Buckley’s Sketches of my Sweetheart the Drunk. Although the opening guitar sounds more like the Blur realms of Britpop, the light acoustic throughout creates a folky feel. Every part of this song works: from the lyrics ‘If heaven feels faraway, just let your spirit sway’ to the perfect gliding ascension and decline from notes in the vocals.
