Working on covers is a sacred exercise for Capital Cities. They meticulously pick songs that they love and then explore them until new harmonic and rhythmic ideas emerge, hopefully bringing a freshness to a timeless melody and lyric.
With “Nothing Compares 2 U”, Capital Cities has this smooth electro pop/rock vibe that anybody can like. It’s no wonder Perez Hilton considers these dudes the “best band in Los Angeles”!
