Captial Cities – Toe Tappin’ Indie Pop

Captial Cities is comprised of two dudes from L.A. that make indie rock with a mix of pop. I fell hard for their track, Safe and Sound. The song is definitely my style with it’s use of electronic synth and catchy hooks. From just that song the band has a sound like MGMT or Foster the People. With some of their other tracks like, Center Stage, you will find a little more funk influence that reminds me a bit of newly released Daft Punk music. What I’ve noticed in much of their music is that they like to use horns in their tracks and you don’t hear horns in a lot of modern music which makes Captial Cities unique.

So, give a listen to Safe and Sound. If you like what you hear give a listen to their other tracks Center Stage and Kangaroo Court on youtube. If you are still wanting more they also do a really cool upbeat rendition of Sinead O’Connor’s, Nothing Compares 2 U. Actually that’s not completely accurate, the song Nothing Compares 2 U was originally recorded by Prince and Sinead O’Connor covered it and it became her biggest hit. Kudos to you if you continued reading because now you know a fun music fact. Below is the video and lyrics for Safe and Sound.

    Capital Cities – Safe and Sound Lyrics

    I could lift you up
    I could show you what you want to see
    And take you where you want to be
    You could be my luck
    Even if the sky is falling down
    I know that we’ll be safe and sound
    We’re safe and sound

    I could fill your cup
    You know my river won’t evaporate
    This world we still appreciate
    You could be my luck
    Even in a hurricane of frowns
    I know that we’ll be safe and sound

    (Safe and sound)
    We’re safe and sound
    (Safe and sound)
    We’re safe and sound
    (Hold your ground)
    We’re safe and sound
    (Safe and sound)

    I could show you love
    In a tidal wave of mystery
    You’ll still be standing next to me
    You could be my luck
    Even if we’re six feet underground
    I know that we’ll be safe and sound
    We’re safe and sound

    Safe and sound
    Safe and sound
    Hold your ground
    Safe and sound

    I could lift you up
    I could show you what you want to see
    And take you where you want to be
    You could be my luck
    Even if the sky is falling down
    I know that we’ll be safe and sound

    I could lift you up
    I could show you what you want to see
    And take you where you want to be
    You could be my luck
    Even if the sky is falling down
    I know that we’ll be safe and sound

    We’re safe and sound
    We’re safe and sound
    We’re safe and sound
    We’re safe and sound

    (Safe and sound)
    We’re safe and sound
    (Safe and sound)
    We’re safe and sound
    (Hold your ground)
    We’re safe and sound
    (Safe and sound)
    We’re safe and sound
