Reviews in Real-Time: Capital Cities

In_a_Tidal_Wave_of_Mystery_by_Capital_Cities_artwork

Artist: Capital Cities
Album: Tidal Wave of Mystery
Released: June 4, 2013

http://www.capitalcitiesmusic.com

Written by Raul Leon – @VillainMy

Capital Cities is a dynamic duo (not of the Batman/Robin variety), a musical dynamic duo, reigning from Los Angeles. It’s members Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian have been collaborating musically since early 2008 when they initially found and met one another through a Craig’s List ad!!! They initially composed “jingles” for various advertisements and commercials. After approximately 3 years of success with jingle writing they decided to venture and create a musical collaborative, Capital Cities.

As Capital Cities they released their first album “Tidal Wave of Mystery” which includes their first hit single, “Safe and Sound”.
Their second single “One Minute More” (my favorite of their songs and the reason why I was ever compelled for my writing this review) arrived on the airwaves shortly after as yet another hit single. I feel that Merchant and Simonion found the perfect balance between a U2 style epic stadium rock and married it with an emotional and inspiring dance music. It truly is a beautiful piece. Simple and never forced, it flows naturally and gracefully.

With at least 2 hit singles in their pockets, two things are certain (listening to their other material):
1) these guys certainly are having fun with their music…
2) they truly have a feel for writing some catchy ass tunes…

I look forward to hearing what they create next? Check these guys out if you are looking for some fun heartfelt music.

Airspeaker’s Review in Real-Time: So right off the bat you get a hint of a Paramore influence when you first hear Open Sails, but don’t let that fool you. From their hometown of Calgary, Alberta Canada, they come at you with their first indie, self-titled, album with just a purely great hard rock/pop album that goes through strong track by track and quickly ends, leaving you wanting more. Great music by the band and strong vocals by Joy Lynn will make this a band to look out for in the near future whenever they come out here to the states. Choosing a song to play first from the album was a bit difficult with songs such as “Breakdown”, “Take It All”, and “Sunsets”, but we decided to go with “All of Me”. We hope to play more of them in the future and hopefully have them on the podcast! Hope you enjoy them as much as I did. (4 1/2 out of 5 headphones)

A Little More About…

Screen-Shot-2013-10-09-at-12.30.03-PM

DIEMONDS
Bio taken from http://www.diemonds.net

(Left to Right):
C.C. Diemond – Guitar Rippin’ & Whiskey Sippin’
Tommy Carvalho – Rockin’ Bass & Givin’ Chase
Priya Panda – Sweet Squealin’ & High Heelin’
Daniel DeKay – Flyin’ Vees & Smokin’ Trees
Aiden Tranquada – Drummin’ Thunder & Evil Plunder

Toronto is the setting for the most molten rock and metal scene in the western hemisphere. Meet Diemonds: the city’s hungriest band, clawing their way out of the underground with their modern day hard rock sound that draws inspiration from rock n’ roll’s heroes. Diemonds combine live theatrics and the antics of bands like Guns n’ Roses, Motley Crue, and Motorhead, with lyrics that speak to the outcasts, wild childs, and misfits. Then, they chew it up and spit it out in a way that only Diemonds can.

Never has the music world been so poised for a frontwoman like Priya Panda, a sultry singer who walks the indeterminable fine line between class and crass and breaks every cultural, social, gender and sexual boundary known to hard rock. If the ever growing legions of Die-Hards are any indication, Priya and the rest of her “Bad Pack” including C.C. Diemond and Daniel Dekay on guitar as well as Tommy Cee on bass and drummer Aiden Tranquada, are firmly carving their own path in music and hoards of rock fans are already along for the ride.

“Our fans have grown with us over the years, they’re a part of our gang and a part of our story. If you’ve ever felt out of place, you’re like family to us,” says guitar player C.C. Diemond.

Their full length record “The Bad Pack” has taken them on countless North American tours with notable stops at festivals like Heavy MTL, SXSW, Rocklahoma, Seattle Hempfest as well as support slots of legends like Slash, Steel Panther and HellYeah!

The meaningful connections Diemonds have made with fans around the world has been crucial to their success. Their highly coveted merchandise items are often sold out well in advance of their release and it’s the Diemonds fans that have inked the band’s logo on their skin, driven from miles around to see them and made them one of the first music acts in Canada to have a successful crowd funding campaign.

Named the Best Underground Artist of 2013 by High Times Magazine and UK’s Classic Rock Magazine selected their music video “GTFO” as the year’s 4th best. “Risking their safety and sanity for rock n’ roll please welcome Toronto’s wild and young…” – Classic Rock Magazine
