Civil Twilight – “Letters From the Sky” [VIDEO]

Civil Twilight consists of three life long friends – brothers Steven and Andrew McKellar and Richard Woulters – who have been playing music together since they were teenagers growing up in Cape Town.  Even though the band resides in Nashville now the longing for the Mother City is evident in their music.  Growing up the trio was heavily influenced by American and European music such as Oasis, U2 and Nirvana.  “I draw my inspiration from the natural beauty of our home country,” explains vocalist/ lyricist/bassist Steven McKellar, when asked about his upbringing in Cape Town, McKellar replies, “I still find myself closing my eyes and dreaming about it, long for it, getting inspiration from the sea. You just can’t escape it.”
