Jacksonville duo Civilization look like mild-mannered guys, but they make some truly crushing and plodding down-tempo hardcore. Their live show is so intense, Josh, the drummer, doesn’t need a mic for his throat-shredding shrieks, while Erik, the guitarist, rasps out lyrics about modern man’s alienation from nature.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
