Band Watch: LITTLE CITY
Deceivingly large in sound and band member roster, Toronto folk-rock collective Little City seem to evoke a strange cinematic feel to their music. Though their debut EP The Going And The Gone dropped back in fall 2010, we only recently discovered them and their song Bright Glow was a quick iM favourite.
It’s a track that leads the ear and mind on a journey, travelling a strange rolling landscape montage begining with a subtle harmonica, continually building with additional instruments – pianos, guitars, drums, pedal steels, glockenspiels – speeding forward until the song comes to it’s single note fading conclusion.
Are you excited yet? Because this is coming from someone who doesn’t typically listen to folk music (Ryan), and it’s been on loop for about the past hour or so… so it should have anyone reading this pretty excited by now.
Little City hit hometown Toronto as part of their cross-Ontario (and parts of Quebec) summer tour on July 22nd when they take the stage at The El Mocambo with Seas, The Maladies Of Adam Stokes, and Little Tybee – considering we’re already fans of everyone else on the bill, this is sure to be one hell of a show!
