The mesmerizing catchy sounds from the trippy alternative pop and the punchy psychedelic rock that takes the haunting magic from David Bowie and the retro old Zeppelin pictures one step towards the future.
4 CiTieS was born in Mariano Latorre home studio as a SoundCloud project which supposed to be a purely pop proposal, but instead of that it turned to be a very eclectic set of styles borrowed from his previous rock, pop and progressive projects from South America.
On september 2011 Mariano settled down in London to start with 4 CiTieS as a one man band. While working as a software developer for a company he managed to write 7 songs during the weekends. Those songs brought the attention from several blogs, online radios and thousands of internet users.
The unique mix of phychedelic, trippy and punchy styles comes from very different influences like David Bowie, Porcupine Tree, Lenny Kravitz, Depeche Mode, L. A. Spinetta, MUTEMATH, Led Zeppelin, The Shins, Metronomy, IAMX, Neil Young, Gotye, The Black Keys, Joy Division, Sade, Peter Murphy, Level 42, The Kills, M83, etc.
