L.A.’s electro-pop duo Capital Cities delivers a new kind of freshness to hipsteresque clubscene, with their latest jam called ‘Safe and Sound’ led a string of blog faves in helping them receive international recognition across the globe independently, without signing to any record label. Believe it or not, band members Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian met each other on Craigslist back in 2008 through a mutual search for songwriting partners.

Light, fun, beautiful piece of indie-pop that has stylish indie notes and features the old-school Juno-106 synth which gives their music vintage yet truly modern sound and takes you to a journey filled with energy and freshness. The band also released a couple of covers, like Madonna’s Holiday, Sinead o’Connor’s hit Nothing compares to you, and they even mixed Pink Floyd with Tupac Shakur with a tune called Breathe.

It is very notable that the band receives positive feedback not only on their record, but also on their live performances: “they can control the audience with addictive beats that cause strangers to dance with each other. Everyone sang along throughout the night regardless if they were first-time listeners”.
