"Listen To This: Marsupial Goodness!"

The best band in Los Angeles at the moment!!!
We LOVE Capital Cities and their sweet brand of hipster pop!
Their latest gem, Kangaroo Court, is so melodic and atmospheric! Pretty and cool! Like Air meets Chromeo! - Perez Hilton

"[Mashup] Capital Cities ft. Tupac Shakur – Breathe (Pink Floyd Cover)"

Did I read that right? Tupac Shakur and Pink Floyd in the same title of the song? Ok, I was intrigued but extremely skeptical. Leave it to the guys of Capital Cities to turn me into a believer. Their interpretation of Breath, from Pink FLoyd’s infamous The Dark Side of the Moon album, is surprisingly refreshing. With a cleaner instrumentation, brighter melodies and pitch perfect vocals, Capital Cities pays tribute to a classic in the most honorable way. Not to mention Tupac lends a couple of verses increasing the awesomeness of the track. Is it just me or every time I hear Tupac I can’t help but to think about the famous skit from Dave Chappelle?

A chill and modern rendition of a classic with a beautiful and welcoming twist. You can download more music from Capital Cities off their facebook. - The Music Ninja
