Masters of the shortform Civic have announced the release of their first longplayer. Future Forecast is coming out on Flightless at the end of the month, packed with 11 new tracks and the a-side of recent single “Radiant Eye”. The sound of these new recordings are more restrained and have surprisingly earned them comparisons to Radio Birdman. The new single “Tell the Papers” comes with a great video set in a bleak, rural Australia that creates an interesting contrast to the big city debauchery of their raw sound. Is it still punk? The vocals are more centred, the production more nuanced, but it’s still the same Civic we know from e.g. “Street Machine Dream” on their debut.
