Columbus, Ohio based pop punk/easycore band CITY LIGHTS formed in early 2008, and since have established themselves as a band with instantly loveable songs and a live presence to be reckoned with. To record their debut EP “Rock Like A Party Star,” the band entered the studio with Bobby Leonard (Attack Attack!, The Crimson Armada), and have created songs that have instilled strong connections with their growing fan base. Lead vocalist, Oshie Bichar, describes it this way:
“Growing up, we were just five kids listening to the same music, and that’s what sparked our friendships, and led to this band. We want to be able to create those same kinds of friendships through our music, and that’s what we’ve set out to do from the beginning.”
Featuring catchy melodies, explosive drums, and melodic, yet heavy guitars, “Rock Like A Party Star” is a must-add to your summer play list. It is sure to bring back fond memories of good times, as well as help create some new ones.
Not a lot of people mention winter as their favorite season. City Lights, a 19 year old Dutch producer of dreamy instrumental Hip-Hop music, associates winter with inspiration and good vibes. On his debut album “Winter All Year”, the influence that winter has had is hard to miss.
From eerie synthesizers that seem to pierce through your eardrum, to warm bathes of sweet melodies, the melancholic winter-feel is always present. On top of this, City Lights ofcourse adds his typical stuttering drums and deep basslines to all of the songs.
It’s already difficult to capture his sound in words, but as a person Jaap Kattevilder (City Lights’ real name) appears to be even more complicated. For example, he has had a drive to showcase his own view on music to the world since childhood, but he detests being idolized on the other hand. On the contrary, City Lights is the type to love all human beings, and he sees it as his mission to make them cry as well as laugh.
He has chosen music as his ultimate instrument to show his emotions to people. On his debut album “Winter All Year” he was assisted by his experienced fellow townsmen Darin Guermonprez (known for his work for DAC, De Colombiaanse Bloedgroep) and Bobby Littlejohn (E-Ville Media).
