From Vancouver BC, We Are The City is a band that is comfortable experimenting with their sound. On their third album Above Club the band embarked on their first foray into self-producing, and found themselves recording music in the back of a bike shop in East Vancouver. This time, the band sought a more impulsive and experimental songwriting process. The chorus in the single “Keep On Dancing”, for example, was totally improvised on the very first ever recording of the song. With their openly stated intent to “outdo all that the band has previously created”, We Are The City clearly has big ambitions, and their ability to create music with an open-minded artistic approach has got to be refreshing for music fans looking for something unique.
We Are The City performed two songs from Above Club, “Keep On Dancing” and “Heavy As A Brick”, live at Indie88 in the Collective Arts Black Box. Watch below or in the player above.
