CIVIC - Radiant Eye OUT NOW!

After a string of sold out 7 inches, and their triple pressed EP ‘New Vietnam’ – ‘Radiant Eye’ marks CIVIC’s first release with Flightless Records.


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”.

With their debut LP set for release in early 2021, keep an eye out for more news from Flightless HQ…  ??????
