We Are The City release ‘King David’ video!

February 18, 2015

For fans of: Mew, The Flaming Lips, Maps & Atlases
Canadian three piece We Are The City unveil their video for King David, a single taken from their debut albumViolent.

Packed full of powerful religious symbolism, the video premiered on The Line Of Best Fit and you can watch it now on YouTube.

You can also check out their video for album track ‘Friends Hurt’ on the band’s YouTube channel.

The band’s influences range from Mew to Bowie and, while this can be heard in their quirky, off-kilter time signatures and whimsical melodies, their sound is very much their own. ‘Bottom of the Lake’ is Band of Horses meetsMenomena but in a dream. Single King David and track ‘I Am, Are You?’ combines the kookiness of The Flaming Lips and the off beat melodies of Mew whilst ‘Friends Hurt’ explores the idea of ‘loud and quiet’ with an intricate build up which leads to a wonderful synth led cacophony of noise.

On their forthcoming album Violent, the band explore wild and exciting soundscapes. Their innovative sound scales sonic peaks, and descends into canyons before rising back up. The further you venture into their world, the more the view of their city unfolds revealing a beacon in the far distance. A signal, if you will, from far way. This is We Are The City.

Violent is released via Sinnbus on 27th April 2015.
