Spring is upon us, the time to embrace some new tunes is nigh. Hey Ocean! will be celebrating the release of their album, IS at The Vogue Theatre on Saturday June 16th. To get everyone in the right mood to appreciate a Saturday evening full of the best British Columbia has to offer, Perryscope Concerts The Vogue Theatre are pleased to announce, We Are The City will be joining the party.
Since forming in 2008, Kelowna, BC’s We Are The City has become one of the most exciting and unpredictable forces in the Canadian music scene. The band soon began earning accolades for its atmospheric progressive-pop sound with the release of their debut LP In a Quiet World in 2009. We Are The City found themselves venturing into new musical terrain on their next release. In March 2011 the band released six songs entitled High School, the result of an experiment that began as a side project during some down time in the summer of 2010. On the quirky “Happy New Year,” West African-inspired licks give way to garage-y rock outs and fuzzed-out Rhodes piano. “Dark/Warm Air” takes a gentler approach, bringing together delicate guitar arpeggios with baroque pop breakdowns and a dash of tropical Mellotron samples. High School also allowed We Are The City to introduce the use of drum machines and string arrangements into their already very layered sound.
Headliners Hey Ocean! is to many the quintessential West Coast band. With three Vancouverites at its core (Ashleigh Ball, David Beckingham, David Vertesi) it’s true that their roots, their name, and many of their lyrics hark back to the pacific shores they call home. However, over the last 6 years they have earned a reputation as much more than just ambassadors of the Pacific Northwest. They are gaining the reputation for being one of Canada’s best young bands.
