A peppy riff, action sport friendly vibe, perfect blend of electronica and guitar: 4 Cities are back with their smashing new single ‘Games’. All I can say is ‘It was worth the wait’. A nice funky 70’s vibe with the aid of modern technology and a a touch of the 90’s in the vocals. Have fun and dance and own your world:
An incredible guitar riff that gets you into the mood right away, super tune: at once hummable, at once danceable! If their last track Ocean was deep, this one is super fun. 4 Cities have surprised me well here..Clearly showcasing the variety they have, this track has everything that makes you wanna dance, swing your head like a zombie on speed, or simply grab the most suitable thing lying in your vicinity and air guitar in front of the slimming mirror on your wardrobe. A great Rap bit in the middle, and fun lyrics that boost your ego, get your adrenaline flowing and make you want to hit on the next pretty young thing you set your eyes on. I might be getting a few sandal/nail marks on my body (not in a good way), but who cares: Tonight, whatever you want!

Another band we featured last month, 4 Cities has come up with a brand new track called Ocean! The track has a great tune and the vocals deserve a special mention on this one! I can’t put my finger on the style but it really is a blend of many. There are passing similarities between this song and some of the works of Bowie/Joy Division/The Cure but then it metamorphoses regularly to something else. Anyhow, it is an accomplished piece of work and 4 Cities deserve a pat on their backs for following up the earlier super singles ‘Highway’ and ‘Quiet Bullets’ with this masterpiece!

Cheers and for those of you in Germany, wish you a very Happy Reunification day for tomorrow!
Just heard the fantastic ‘Highway’ by 4 Cities on soundcloud. I am blown away by the old school rock sound which has only been heard in fits and starts after the 90’s. A modern day cowboy feeling, with the surreal sounds that only true musical instruments can bring. Electronica has great potential, but digitization can only take you so far.
According to their website: ‘ 4 CiTieS is an indie band. It mixes a very eclectic set of styles from alternative pop, indie, funk, rock and electronic music. At the moment, 4 CiTieS is busy working on the first album release which will be available by the end of 2012.
All songs have been fully created/performed/produced by the singer songwriter Mariano Latorre in his home studio at London, UK during 5 weekends while working as a software developer at Time Out London.’
All I can say that I am eagerly awating the album and wish them all the best
