The Capital Cities train has been an incredibly fun ride for my friends and me. We obsessed over the Southern California band and their lavish uplifting funk pop from even before the birth of I Heart Moosiq, hitting up their intimate early shows at Popscene and elsewhere time and time again, dancing and singing along to Safe And Sound like the world were going to explode and we really kept ourselves safe and sound by becoming one with the band. Watching these dance pop troubadours blow up and achieve great success has been a fulfilling experience. It’s been three years since Capital Cities’ debut album In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery, and the band’s members have dabbled in their own solo and side projects in these past years. There’s nothing like a reunion of Sebu and Ryan, however. The two are back to give us their first new song in far too long, a whimsical infectious tune named Vowels. The song squishes and ripples, trumpets and jams, another opulent twirler of a pop banger. This time, Capital Cities brings some extra glamorous disco heat. I don’t think the vowels of the alphabet have ever been sexier. So how about it, Capital Cities? Do we get to dance to you live again soon? Purchase Vowels from various outlets, here.
