If you haven’t heard about New City you might be sleeping. Not napping or a quick snooze but likely a full, R.E.M. knockout. After meeting at hotel party almost two years ago, the Canadian trio have been building some of the smartest pop songs in the country. After catching Timbaland’s eye and working at length with the legendary producer, they’ve made tidal waves for their updated take on the kind of technicolour, multi-faceted pop that belongs to pre with your closest pals before you go out and the bunch-soaked morning after where you recall everything that went down.
Think of them as an immaculate blend of The Killers at their height, the unstoppable energy at Bruno Mars and the calculated pomp of Arcade Fire. Ever had a Calvin Harris, Billie Eilish, The Weeknd and Halsey bath bomb all rolled into one irresistible package, with the musicianship to prove that they’re the real deal? That’s what New City are delivering in incredible doses.
We’re lucky enough to be co-presenting one of their first major Toronto showcases and we want YOU to come along for the ride. Enter this contest for the chance to win a pair of tickets to the show.
