CIVIC - "RADIANT EYE" 7"
Civic blast through an original piece (three minutes on the nose) and a perfectly executed cover, as they are want to do, and they’re back with a bang. The vitality in their performance makes Civic hard to ignore. The thick, slightly buzzy and blown sound on this 45 (yes, it is 45RPM!) is the perfect outfight for these songs, stepping onto your turntable dressed to kill. They’re a perfect example of a group who found their swagger and have marched steadily onward at pace ever since, looking neither left nor right lest they lose focus and stumble. Having found their own sound and how to more comfortably squeeze influences, experimentation and expand horizons, there’s no signs of slowing down. Radiant Eye hits like an early days Michigan-cum-Brisbane punk rock explosion but it’s clear these cats are more than a throwback or nostalgia trip. Keep your eye peeled and make time for Civic.
Turbo charged and full of heat, ‘Radiant Eye’ is a blazing cut of rock and roll that leaves nothing in the tank. Squalling feedback in tow, CIVIC craft this into their own beast - taming it under a wave of blistering riffs, howling saxophone, and searing vocals which propel the track with staunch conviction. They don’t tip-toe around the edges - but obliterate them with primal intensity. Driving and tenacious, but never losing sight of a good hook and how to use it. These clear garage smarts on full display with their B Side cover of The Creation, as they shake off the trebley grit for a more blasting version of the 1966 hit, ‘Making Time’. Catchy, conscious, and commanding from both sides of this ripping 7”.
