About the artist
Civil Civic are an instrumental post-punk/electronic rock band consisting of two Australian musicians, Aaron Cupples and Benjamin Green, formed in 2009. Aaron currently resides in London, UK, and Benjamin lives in Barcelona, Spain. They employ a drum machine which is referred to as the third member of the band and is called 'The Box'. Their sound has been compared with bands such as Gang Of Four, The Pixies, My Bloody Valentine, The Cure, The Smiths, Sonic Youth and Joy Division. Their live shows have been described as "a perfectly synchronised mesh of electro pop and cheek-vibrating space noise" with a "stage presence and lust for playing that exhilarates in the extreme".
