The Civil Union’s extraordinary sound was found out of happenstance more than by design. The duo was in the process of jumping into recording their debut self-titled album when their house—containing the files of all of their recordings—was broken into and robbed. The duo had to essentially start from scratch and created a more “expansive” version of the original album. They took risks, added new sounds, and came out stronger than ever.
Self-described as “Twenty-One Pilots meets ABBA,” this Canadian duo has a sound that is part dream pop, part alt-rock with an explosively contagious vibe that you’ll be singing along to in no time.
