WE ARE THE CITY | Vancouver, BC

Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, We Are The City has steadily gained the reputation of being Canada’s consistently exciting, yet markedly unpredictable, cult-bands. Their previous full length, and sophomore album Violent was released in Europe by Sinnbus, in America by Tooth & Nail Records, and in Canada by Boompa Records. Violent (both the album and the film), went on to achieve international success.

“This is a remarkably assured effort,” noted the Georgia Straight. “(We Are The City) has always balanced pop songcraft and unabashed prog-rock leanings. It’s clear right off the top that, in making Violent, We Are the City’s intention was to push itself as far as possible in both directions at once.”

We Are The City took an impulsive and experimental approach to their third full-length album, Above Club, released on November 13th. From an undisclosed location above a club, the band live streamed the entirety of the writing and recording process of their new album on an embedded video player on their website. The stream aired 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and gave a window into the creation of their music, even allowing the viewer to listen in on conversations yet at other times was a baffling piece of visual art that filled with analog distortion, low-tech interference, and absurd, hard-to-believe sequences that question the legitimacy of the entire broadcast.

With their always progressive, boundary-pushing music, We Are The City are navigating their career in an about face, non-traditional manner and embarking on an idea with the intent to outdo all that the band has previously created. Above Club delivers exactly that with its own modern version of cleverly written pop. First it seems to be noisy, loud and intense but inside it shines of beauty that is above anything else. Recorded above a club, mixed by Ryan Dahl (Limblifter, Mounties) and Steve Bays (Hot Hot Heat, Mounties) it creates a new genre that is a bit above everything. And, if we’ve had you along for the ride this far, don’t you want to see what happens next?
