Capital Cities

Capital Cities performed in Seattle on May 26 and will be performing in Berlin on June 11 as part of the Yahoo! On the Road tour.

Partnerships born out of a Craigslist ad rarely end well, and being dubbed the “best band in Los Angeles” by Perez Hilton can be a dubious distinction -- unless you’re talking about Capital Cities.

Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian, the frontmen behind the breakout pop-rock group are a success story spawned by the Internet that’s continued to blossom. The Los Angeles-based act, which boasts a five-piece live set, took both the blogosphere and the shores of California by storm with 2011’s debut of its self-titled EP -- and haven’t looked back since.

This year’s "Kangaroo Court" was a worthy follow up, and has erased any doubt that Capital Cities is more than a one-hit-wonder. Their electronic-infused pop rock represents all that is right in modern music making and makes the perfect soundscape for a day at the beach, as long as you’re ready to dance.
