We Are The City Release New Music Video For “MID-TEMPO DRAMA”

MID-TEMPO DRAMA blends the spontaneity and discovery of human performance with the mathematics and architecture of computer music. Watch here

The percussive sounds in the last third of the track were recorded in a green room right before going onstage using nothing but drumsticks, a couch, and an iPhone. While other sounds could only be created by digitally downgrading samples, virtually “destroying” them before giving them a home in the soundscape.

Acclaimed Vancouver indie-rock act We Are The City are returning with a new full length titled AT NIGHT. This marks the trio’s first LP since 2015’s Above Club and celebrates the band’s signing to Light Organ Records in Canada. The new album is slated for release October 5, 2018 via Tooth & Nail in the United States.

The album is joyful and intentionally imperfect. Featuring a guest appearance from Canadian hip-hop star Shad (who sings here, rather than rapping) and an abundance of overlaying gossamer melodies with static-soaked experimentation. This is the sound of lightning in a bottle.
