- We Are The City -

For the members of We Are The City, the four years since 2009's In a Quiet World have been filled with radical change, both personal and musical. They've undergone lineup alterations, relocated from Kelowna to Victoria to Vancouver, reached their 20’s, built up a fan base across the country and painstakingly honed their sound. All of this experience, both good and bad, went into making their sophomore album, Violent, released June 4, 2013 through Hidden Pony Records.

Produced once again by Tom Dobrzanski (Said The Whale, the Zolas, Hey Ocean!) at his newly constructed Monarch Studios, Violent is an album of soaring highs and hushed comedowns, with dense syncopations going toe-to-toe with noise-soaked crescendos and delicate pop melodies. "King David" moves from aggressive distortion to gentle acoustic plucking to swirling ambience, while "Bottom of the Lake" places marimba tinkles atop a gritty guitar backdrop, and the cerebral "Baptism" builds towards the album's most thunderous climax.

We Are the City's restless sense of artistry has led the musicians through years of self-discovery as they have continued to strive for the next creative peak. Now that they've finally arrived with Violent and its accompanying film, there's no question that the journey has been worthwhile.
