LOS ANGELES, CA 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 distinctionunless 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's 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. 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, as long as you're ready to dance.
"Consider yourself warned, listening to Capital Cities is habit-forming." (Status Magazine)
"The best band in Los Angeles. We LOVE Capital Cities and their sweet brand of hipster pop!" (Perez Hilton)
"A sonic head rush. An easy, breezy, beautiful slice of effervescent electro-pop that absolutely kills it." (Neon Gold)
"Bound to make your dance-infused taste buds sizzle. The music swarms with outside-of-the-box tendencies, jam-packed full of life, energy and unusual yet fantastic sounds." (Clixie)
