The New Cities / Press

“Juno-nominated the New Cities will be playing next Saturday, July 14, as part of the lineup for this year’s Lift-Off festival.”

“The stage at Tattoo Rock Parlour is a little small for a band with so many energetic members, they were nearly bouncing on top of each other – however it didn’t stop them from putting off a show for their dedicated fans who were up front and center long before their set started.”

“Perform is quite the word to use in The New Cities’ case. From the keyboardists jumping on their instruments while playing to the singer going from side to side of the stage and dancing all the way, these four guys definitely put on an exhilarating performance.”

“Of all the bands we’ve seen thus far, this one has the most up-and-coming commercial potential. They’re catchy new wave synth punk with just enough pop. The entire band exuded tremendous energy right from the get-go, which seemed to fill the entire space. What made this band’s energy seem bigger was that they seemed to be having the time of their lives on stage (loved the keyboardist’s acrobatics).”

“The band are clearly influenced by the likes of New Order and Death From Above 1979, but add their own unique twist. Produced by Greig Nori (the onetime frontman of Treble Charger who has since made his mark producing Sum 41), ‘Dead End Countdown’ follows all the melancholy that surrounds a break-up. The band who have just been nominated for ‘best new group’ at the Canadian JUNO awards, have been busy in their home country where they recently went busking in the metro stations of Montreal to raise money for War Child. The New Cities toured the UK last month garnering rave reviews, and will be back on our shores very soon, in the meantime they are on a headline tour of Canada.”

“With his band, The New Cities, up for a Best New Group Juno, lead singer David Brown has a lot of people he’d like to thank: family, girlfriends – every person, band and radio station that made the liner notes of the band’s debut, Lost in City Lights … and more. But on any list of thankyous – even one in no particular order – someone has to be named first. And according to Brown, Greig Nori is “at the top of the list.””
