Philadelphia based indie outfit Civil Youth are on a roll. Since 2015, they have embarked on 6 U.S. tours, and they’ve now just released a video of an acoustic performance of their song “Sleep.”
“Sleep” is from the band’s first album Disguised in Color, released in 2014. Disguised in Color received a fair bit of attention, being played on 134 FM radio stations. Civil Youth even licensed music TV stations such as MTV, E!, and VH1. In July of 2015, just 9 months after their first album came their sophomore release Who Rescued Who. Their recent acoustic EP is entitled Ossein.
This performance of “Sleep” features all three members of Civil Youth playing a much lighter version of the song. An acoustic guitar, a mandolin, and Daytona Beach. You can watch the video below!
Singer Michael Kepko had this to say about the video: "We hope you enjoy our video of "Sleep" from our first record, "Disguised In Color". To preface this day, we drove from a show in Orlando to shoot this the following morning, then continued the day driving to Atlanta, GA for another show the next evening. Irony at its best..."
