We Are The City release ‘Keep On Dancing’ video!
We Are The City exist on the horizon of vision, a beacon in the distance that slowly gets closer as you walk towards it, the true scale of their sound looming ever larger. Their forthcoming single Keep On Dancing follows on from their debut album, Violent, which was released earlier this year to acclaim from the likes of Drowned In Sound and The Line Of Best Fit.
With a blend of Cayne McKenzie’s tropical keys and distant ethereal vocals with Andrew Huculiak’s tribal drums and David Menzel minimalist and atmospheric guitar, the trio create a whirlwind of music that elevates the listener. There’s also a strong message of positivity in the lyrics as, faced with the trials and tribulations of life, no matter how tempting withdrawal from the world can be, it’s important to power through and find the strength to carry on.
We Are The City are also talented directors, script writers and film producers, creating their own music videos and even their own film Violent. The band’s influences range from Mew to Bowie and although this can be heard in their quirky, off-kilter time signatures and whimsical melodies, they’ve very much carved out their own personal sound.
