Even with their internal discourse the duo of Joy Williams and John Paul White, better known as The Civil Wars, continue to create magic with each other throughout their latest self-titled release. But this time there is an obvious sense of gloom within their beautiful harmonies and melodies. Lead single, “The One That Got Away”, gives a hint inside the duo’s discourse but it’s a moot point because the song itself is tragically beautiful as is the rest of the album.
