THE CITY’S FINEST
The City’s Finest is a collaborative of artists drawn together by the opportunity to make something new. What started as an occasional meet-up between a few established musicians gradually turned into an experiment in genre-splitting and musical innovation. Following the prior experience of the group, the beginning stages of writing teetered between simple rock and pop, but as time passed, their music evolved and matured. Their songs started to become richer and fuller—the use of synthesizers, samplers, electronic drums, delay pedals, and effects were added to dark melodies and lyrics saturated with irony and wit. Somewhere in between it all, the group found what they were looking for—infectious rock with an electronic and symphonic edge. The song “A Different Kind of Love” served as their formula; the band began to write more songs that were catchy and radio-friendly, with enough edge and creativity to stand out from the rest.
It wasn’t long before The City’s Finest settled into their sound niche and began working on their first full length release. Through careful musical development and refinement, the group crafted each song on the album with a flamboyant attitude reminiscent of Queen, a pop sensibility akin to chart toppers Panic! At the Disco and Fall Out Boy, and an orchestral element along the lines of Danny Elfman and Hans Zimmer. Regardless of the category of music, each member of the band brings his own talent to the table in an attempt to create an array of sounds that is instantly recognizable, but otherwise unique.
The City’s Finest embodies a synergetic blend of rock, orchestral, and electronic elements, and the release of their self-produced, full-length album, A Different Kind of Love, is a testament to their desire for an ever-evolving sound.
