Capital Cities - Venus & River [1B] (2018)

Great new banging tune!

Capital Cities are pretty consistent. Catchy, melodic, memorable. The use of horns or horn textures always seem to work with their music.

When their next full-length is coming? I dunno. But they keep making great singles that I wonder if it's not too far away.

The Swimming Pool Summer EP from 2017 was rather good, and the singles "Vowels" and "My Name is Mars" also carried the same melodic, catchy, upbeat vibe.

I keep thinking about River Phoenix and his movies when hearing this. I love how they use 80's references in their songs, or just have an 80's vibe at times.
