Bio & Press
City and The Sea release their new EP “Action Figures” in February 2013.
The first single “Strange Feeling” has already garnered attention for it’s riff-heavy, catchy sound.
The band’s profile has been rising and fans are catching on to their hooky tunes and rocking stage show. These guys don’t fool around in the rock ‘n’ roll department. Their sound has been compared to the Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World and Smashing Pumpkins.
Live, loud, melodic and fiercer than ever, City and The Sea are sporting a new lineup, new songs and a fresh attitude.
After tours in Canada and Europe, and three releases, for all intents and purposes, City and The Sea is a brand new band.
The live show has never been tighter or more engaging, from the howl of Jon Daly’s lead guitar to the soulful lead vocals of Nick Cino. Dave Marini is the band’s heart on the bass, and new addition Joe Piccolo has given the band new life behind the skins. The new songs tackle themes of change, escape, identity, and aliens. Lots of aliens.
City and the Sea is:
Nick Cino – Vocals, Guitar
Jon Daly – Lead Guitar
Dave Marini – Bass
Joe Piccolo – Drums
“Only came across this Canadian band this afternoon, grab a few listens and check out the fuzzy guitar riff in your left hand speaker – That`s definitely some quality mischief in the production department, menacingly hook heavy and deliciously soulful. The lead single `Strange Feeling` is out now on a free download, the forthcoming EP entitled `Action Figures` is due out in 2013 – The A to Z of excellent Hamilton bands has just got one line longer.” - Mojophenia, UK
“Seriously, this is a fun band with a big sound. Turn up the volume and play your best air guitar.” - The DaDaDa, North Carolina
“Hamilton rockers City and The Sea are back with Strange Feeling, the lead single of their forthcoming EP Action Figures, out in early 2013. It’s a straight up in your face rock song, with instantly rememberable hook.” - Here Comes The Flood, Netherlands
“This single, Strange Feeling, equips their Rock’ N Roll melodic hooks with a layer of blasting harmonies. I am especially fond of the ending of the tune, where the grungy guitar unison leads to the ending with an overdriven guitar solo. It’s a perfect moment to show off your air guitar skill.” – Music Psychos, Toronto
