I like Flashback days in any form : Flashback Friday, Remember Whens-day, Throwback Thursday, even Mamember Monday. To add a lil depth to this social media-ism, the reflection it allows reminds me of where I've been, how I got there, and where I might be going. I'd like to think that we all do this to some degree - and not just to give us something to do on the socials.
Me thinks (humbly), reflection is actually less about the past that we’ve already lived and more about being responsible with the life we've been given, with the time we're allotted. Allowing the past to propel us forward, enabling us to live the most authentically awesome existence possible in the here and now.
Even if what we are remembering could have “gone better” or represents decisions that we kinda messed up... that’s what makes us human.
Civil Twilight, made up of South African bros, Andrew and Steven Mckellar, their childhood mate Richard Wouters and American adoptee Kevin Dailey, has been compared to the likes of early U2 and Radiohead. While they inhabit their own, well earned space in the musiVerse, I can't argue. They occupy the space carved out by the aforementioned Alt-Rock forefathers - and soothe a melancholy soul by acknowledging, we’re not alone in our (occasional) ache.
Civil Twilight has released 3 albums to date and contributed many a euphonious creation to many an emotive movie and TV show soundtrack. A Civil Twilight album can and should be listened to from beginning to end without skipping any tracks. It all feels so right in your heart, soul and ears.
"Human" was one of my first experiences with these swooners and I love it like a fool. I know you will too.
Close your eyes and feel it...
It's only ❤️ ,
