Sivan Langer’s latest single, “The Second Cup,” is a beautiful blend of indie rock and folk influences, with a touch of alternative rock thrown in for good measure. The track features Langer on vocals and guitar, as well as production and virtual string instruments, Adam Alesi on drums, and John Grahm on Hammond electric keyboard.
Langer and his fellow musicians were brought together through the power of the internet. Their main influences include artists like Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, Nirvana, and Leonard Cohen. The crew has gained an initial following in the indie rock and alternative rock scene, with many indie blogs covering their music and praising Langer as a talented and diverse artist.
“The Second Cup” is a song about the struggles of waking up in the morning, as well as themes of entropy and the contrast between everyday life and grandiose experiences. The song has a groovy, late 60s early 70s vibe that brings to mind the best of power pop and rock and roll, while still maintaining its indie rock and folk-rock roots.
