City of Glass – “Sticks and Stones”

City of Glass
After spending much of 2011 in Berlin, City of Glass is back in Vancouver. Below, watch the incendiary video for the danceable post-punk number “Sticks and Stones” from last year’s The Diving Bell EP.

The band will celebrate its Canadian return with a show at the Anza Club on May 19. Look for a full-length album to come out sometime before long.

A childhood story in my dreams

Ich bin ein Berliner
City is Glass is back with a new EP. It’s called The Diving Bell and you can get it from Bandcamp as a pay-what-you-want download. Below, check out the sombre “Tourist,” which takes the band’s sound into a more expansive, electro-heavy direction than on past works. The enormous, cinematic synths steal the show here.

I wrote about the EP for Exclaim! and interviewed singer Michael Champion about the band’s temporary move to Berlin for the Georgia Straight.

In between it all

Guess who's Travolta in this Fight Club reinactment
As I discussed last time, I’m currently in Whistler at the TELUS World Ski & Snowboard Festival, blogging like crazy for Chevrolet On Scene.

I caught Vancouver’s City of Glass this afternoon, and I’ll be checking them out again tomorrow. Hopefully I’ll be able to sit down with them for a quick chat as well.

I’m here for another week, so I probably won’t be updating this site until I’m back home. Head over to Facebook to see what I’ve been up to. In the meantime, here’s “Big Ideas,” a haunting post-punk throwback from City of Glass.
