Capital Cities - Nothing Compares 2 U (Sinéad O’Connor Cover)
Partnerships born out of a Craig’s List ad rarely end well, and being dubbed the “best band in Los Angeles” by Perez Hilton can be a dubious distinction—unless you’re talking about Capital Cities.
Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian, the front men behind the breakout pop-rock group, are a success story spawned by the Internet that has continued to blossom.
The Los Angeles-based act, which boasts a five-piece live set, took both the blogosphere and the shores of California by storm with 2011’s debut, self-titled EP, and haven’t looked back since.
Lead single ‘Safe and Sound’ shot to #2 on The Hype Machine and #1 on South American radio, which helped the band tour that continent, twice.
This year’s ‘Kangaroo Court’ was a worthy follow up and has erased any doubt that Capital Cities is a one hit wonder. Their electronic-infused pop rock represents all that is right in modern music making and makes the perfect soundscape for a day at the beach—or a night in the dark part of town—as long as you’re ready to dance.
