HIDDEN CITIES DEBUT EP ‘ALL NEW FRIENDS’ OUT NOVEMBER 6TH
OPENING FOR JESSE MALIN AT BOWERY BALLROOM DECEMBER 29TH
Hidden Cities is a NYC-based band with a shared love for the sounds of the streets and a sweaty dance floor. Harnessing the frenzied energy of a city in transit, their songs evoke urban life through stories of adventure and true love.
The collective songwriting effort yields haunting, catchy melodies over dueling guitars and bouncing rhythm and bass, occasionally punctuated by Stax-style horns. The percussive, energetic Hidden Cities sound is perfect for pre-party rituals before heading out into the night!
Their debut EP All New Friends features their unique blend of boozy bluesy rock songs that evoke nostalgia for a city life that once was and for love once lost, while keeping listeners too busy dancing to dwell. To capture these sounds, the band went out of their element, recording in a studio situated in a former textile mill in Rollinsford, NH, with engineer Dean Baltulonis (The Hold Steady, Lucero), finishing 12 songs in 2 days.
