Violent is We Are The City’s second studio album, released in March on Hidden Pony Records.
The album was released at the same time as a feature film with the same title. Produced by the band with Amazing Factory Productions, was premiered at a film festival in their hometown Vancouver.
The thing about this album that makes it so special and sets it apart from your general, run-of-the-mill guitar based indie album, is the way it’s produced. It’s so delicately and professionally done that exactly this part of it is often missed out. Because if you just have a quick listen, you won’t feel it. For me, it took a slow day at the record shop and the vinyl version to realize why I suddenly got so emotional.
Their new single Keep On Dancing, released in September, will probably be part of a new album coming out sometime soon(ish).
