Capital Cities, the indie pop duo from Los Angeles, released their long anticipated debut album In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery on Tuesday, June 4 on Capitol Records, in partnership with Lazy Hooks. This high energy album brings about one of the most unique sounds in the electro-pop genre. After listening to Kangaroo Court for a while myself, Capital Cities came to me as the perfect blend of the growing dance music scene, and the pop influences of commercial radio. With their surge into the scene, Capital Cities are bringing out their "Dancing With Strangers" tour back to Los Angeles this week, playing two sold-out shows at L.A.’s El Rey Theatre on June 6 and 7. Be sure to purchase the album out on iTunes NOW, and be sure to check out their tour dates for the month of June and beyond!
In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery includes the multi-format radio smash “Safe and Sound,” which hit number 1 at Modern Rock radio this week and climbing the charts on other formats. Praised by RollingStone.com for the way it merges “high-energy dance beats with unbridled optimism and joy,” “Safe and Sound” has already sold more than 260,000 copies and is featured on the NOW 45 compilation.
The New York Times’ website premiered In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery in the week leading up to is release, which also features the tracks “Kangaroo Court”, “I Sold My Bed, But Not My Stereo” and “Farrah Fawcett Hair” which features Andre 3000.
