The three members of the alt-rock band Civil Twilight hail from Cape Town, South Africa, but they grew up studying the sound of British and American bands such as Radiohead and Nirvana while trying their own hand at songwriting. After learning the ropes of the Cape Town music scene, the trio relocated to the U.S. (they're now based in Nashville) and continued to produce soaring, stirring rock. This impassioned track from their sophomore self-titled release burns with smoldering, moving desperation.
