Video: Civil Twilight – “River” (CoS Premiere)

Civil Twilight video

“Life on the road” is a quintessential theme for most music videos, but South African rock outfit Civil Twilight offer a somewhat refreshing take with their video for “River”. Having been on tour for some time now, behind both 2009’s self-titled debut and this past March’s Holy Weather, the band is more than accustomed to the clip’s portrayal of jam-packed live shows and endless time traversing in a cramped bus, a chaotic experience enhanced by the high-speed film quality. But it’s the inclusion of a side trip to a rocky mountainside that stands out, the boys’ amateur wall-climbing and hiking an apt metaphor for the rocky challenges and excitements of the rock and roll lifestyle. Watch it below.

Holy Weather is out now via Wind-Up Records. The band has tour dates scheduled through the end of the year, and you can consult the full schedule below.
