City City is an indie rock band based in Los Angeles, California. The band formed members Jeff Kirchner and Dan McCollister bonded over their mutual love for the musical “Jesus Christ Superstar.” After enlisting the help of Valerie Ngai and Jarrett Portnoy, the band began production of their first full-length album. During the writing and recording process, they added longtime collaborator Claire Cetera to complete the band’s signature blend of 80s/90s synthpop and electronic indie.
While steadily building their fan-base at home, the band has toured cities throughout California, Hawaii, the Midwest and many other states. Their music video for “the Network” gained national airtime on FuseTV, as well as being featured on OurStage.com, Skope Magazine, and Blonde.com. City City songs have also been featured on “Loveline with Mike and Dr. Drew” and MTV. In addition to two EPs (Lines, Adult People), the band also produced a record with Tim Heidecker (Tim and Eric) and Greg Turkington (Neil Hamburger) as the Yellow River Boys. It also featured friend of the band, James Valentine (Maroon 5), with whom Jeff recently produced several demos. The album “Urinal St. Station” (Drag City Records) was named the number one album on VICE magazine’s “Top 50 Albums of 2013.” The band also played Festival Supreme with Heidecker and Wood, and were joined onstage by Jack Black, John C Reilly, and Valentine.
Heavily influenced by the synth driven 80s and 90s, their upbeat songs compel you to dance and the multi-instrumentalist band members switch duties throughout shows. The band released a self titled full-length album to a packed house at Whisky A-Go-Go in Hollywood. “I Don’t Dance” enjoyed time on the TOP 5 of KROQ’s Local’s Only show with Kat Corbett for two months, hitting the number one spot four times. With rave reviews for both of their first two videos off the new album, City City is ready to take the world by storm.
