Civil Twilight

Civil Twilight is a South African four-piece rock band from Cape Town, South Africa, consisting of the brothers Andrew and Steven McKeller, plus Richard Wouters, and Kevin Dailey. They are signed to Wind-up Records, and have released two studio albums—their self-titled debut album, Civil Twilight (2010), and Holy Weather (2012). The band is set to release their third studio album, Story of an Immigrant, on 2 June 2015 via Wind-up Records.


Originally hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, Civil Twilight started as a trio that drew parallels with The Police and very early U2, Muse, Jeff Buckley, and Radiohead. Their music has been described as having impassioned vocals and classic song craft. Brothers Andrew and Steven McKellar were raised in a musical household, having explored their father's jazz collection at a young age while listening to their classically trained mother play piano. In November 1996, Andrew launched a teenaged band with help from his high school classmate, drummer Richard Wouters, who was just starting out in music and was not yet the world class drummer he is now. The two scheduled an inaugural rehearsal for the following month; in the interim, Andrew discovered that his younger brother, Steven, could sing and write songs. The three musicians subsequently banded together, with Steven agreeing to master the bass.
