Today we bring you The Small Cities from St. Paul, Minnesota, with a track from their debut self-titled EP released last year. With driving rhythms, gorgeous vocal harmonies and an all round cheery disposition, this is a great summer track to listen to in the sunshine.
The Small Cities are three friends from the Twin Cities playing well-crafted songs with nostalgic storylines and infectious refrains. The modest 3 piece outfit earned their wings in other Minneapolis bands like Wes Burdine & The Librarians and by swimming in at least three of Minnesota’s ten thousand lakes.
|Their first musical offering is in the form of a self-titled EP on Common Cloud Records. Though it is only four songs, each song is a world unto its own. From the reverb drenched Beach Boys-esque harmonies of “This City,” and the driving summer song pulse of “Fargo,” to the wall of sound guitars that rip through the end of “Trust Me, I am NOT a Stalker,” and ending with the icy slow-burner “I’m Gone,” the Small Cities mix it up enough to always keep it interesting.
The Small Cities EP begins in the Spring and ends with Winter’s thaw. It’s a first taste of the gleaming hooks and driving beats that should sustain us all until The Small Cities long player is ready to be released into the wild.
