Biography

Union City is a modern rock/indie pop band from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada that has established itself in the indie Canadian music scene as one the countrys best kept secret.

Drawing from British rock bands like the Stone Roses, Oasis, and the Charlatans, as well as modern indie bands like the Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Bombay Bicycle Club, Union City creates lush soundscapes drowned in reverb and littered with catchy hooks.

After releasing the EP These Days in 2010, the title song charted in the CMJ Top 200 in the summer of 2010 and the band signed a licensing deal with several television networks in the US (including MTV, E! TV and Oxygen Networks) for programs like The City, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, The Spindustry, The Bad Girls Club, and Warren the Ape, among others.

In March of 2013, the band released their first LP, A Drop in the Ocean, featuring the single Love Lies Down, and the haunting anthemic "A Drop in the Ocean". 

Union City is:

  • Matt Crowley (vocals/guitar)
  • Kent Randall (vocals/ keyboards)
  • Ben Anderson (bass/backing vocals) 
  • Mark Chamberlain (drums)

..They come across as a cool amalgamation of The Kinks and early Oasis, minus the attitude. - ItsNotTheBandIHateItsTheirFans.blogspot.com
