Capital Cities :: [Tonight @ Rock Shop]

Synth-pop dealers Capital Cities descend on Rock Shop tonight after their New York debut last night at Pianos. The band's self-titled EP, featuring the best unsigned song of the year, "Safe and Sound" is a sharp slice of pop, rife with buzzing keyboards and glittering arpeggios. More importantly, perhaps, is the horn (recorded live) on "Safe and Sound", officially helping 2011 be the Year of Brass Instruments In Pop along with M83's "Midnight City" and the Rapture's "How Deep Is Your Love". And the fact that "Safe and Sound" is, and should be, considered in the same breath as those other singles tells you something unmistakable and serious for an unsigned act. Tonight, you have a chance to see a band in the beginning stages of lift off in a room that has the same square-footage of your apartment (this is not a compliment to your apartment).
