TheCityIsOurs combine hard-hitting riffs with melodic songwriting. This formula has worked very well for them, earning a reputation that has seen them play shows alongside Our Hollow, Our Home and InVisions. The band released ‘Veins’ back in September, combining an emotional chorus with a crushing intensity.
The beautiful piano and synths give way to a melodic, well-written riff which sees both guitars work very well alongside each other. The song structure is similar to the band’s previous work, however, this time they have crafted a big chorus that will get stuck into your head straight away. It brings out the best in the band, making it a joy to listen to. The lead guitar in the breakdown is layered with atmospheric textures which take the track in a new direction.
‘Veins’ shows TheCityIsOurs at their best and the combination of aggression and melody is the perfect introduction for new listeners.
