Civalias - "We've Got Company"

I stumbled upon Civalias on thesixtyone.com through the track "We've Got Company," and I'm glad I did. Civalias is the project of 23-year-old Adam Stidham, based in Los Angeles. The name sounds like a kicky pharmaceutical drug, but according to an interview with The Examiner, he says it's a combo of the words "civilian" and "alias." Makes sense.

His EP "You.Me.We" is available now, and it's insanely catchy. It has the glamour of pop with a hint of indie rock, and while at first it sounds a little like the Fray (both are piano-backed with breathy vocals), Stidham creates a lush sound all his own. I think a lot of people can relate to "We've Got Company," especially as the music video highlights the meaning of the title:



He's currently working on his first full-length album, and I wish him great luck.
