Barely Civil Thrive In The Crosshairs of Jangly Emo and Alt-Country with “Tidal Wave (Mylo Kunis)”

Posted 1 year ago by Joel Funk


Barely Civil exist in the intersection of jangly midwestern emo and the drawly, alt-country styling of a band like Pinegrove. This is shown off on the forthcoming Year of the Dog, and is perfectly encapsulated on “Tidal Wave (Mylo Kunis).” The verses cement the band into their midwestern emo roots before exploding into the unquestionably high-flying chorus. You can pre-order Year of the Dog before it’s December 16th release, and you can stream “Tidal Wave (Mylo Kunis)” below.
