FM darlings, Capital Cities, have been getting the lion’s share of exposure on the radio waves. This affects those of you that casually listen to the radio. Gasp. That old thing.
For what it’s worth, Capital Cities’ veracious take on the massive “Safe and Sound” single crushed the Jimmy Kimmel’s outside stage. In fact, that catchy trumpet riff single-handedly hypnotized people. CC is touring in support of their first proper release, “n a Tidal Wave of Mystery,” which dropped last month. The SoCal kids will be making their way to the Denver area as part of the colossally packed Riot Fest music soiree happening way out east in Byers. Sure beats the hell out of composing commercial jingles like they did in the past. Reverb has the full lineup over here.
