Adelaide outfit City Riots have returned with a new single ‘Wait For You‘ off their impending album ‘Sea of Bright Lights‘ due out later this year.
Having enjoyed City Riots other tunes like ‘She Never Wants to Dance’, and in particular ‘Matchsticks’, I was keen to hear the new songs the band had produced during their songwriting getaway to rural South Australia. In many ways, ‘Wait For You’ is like City Riots took their jangly guitars and pop inspired vocals and travelled back in time to re-discover their edge with a 70s inspired reverb soaked, dreamy indie vibe. And to be honest, I think City Riots nailed it. They took their initial sound, changed some things, and overall enhanced it, without losing their identity. ‘Wait for You’ is a relaxed, hazy, chill out tune that just oozes cool.
We are really digging City Riots new sound, and their debut album ‘Sea of Bright Lights’ promises to be quite the listen when it drops in October. Until then you can catch them as they tour about the country, details below.
