The City views hail from Perth, Western Australia. Brought to life after the demise of local heroes “the sensitive drunks”, Dave Wallace and Mark Eaton enlisted the help of guitarist and long time friend, Tom Goodrick, and then made him buy a bass. The City Views have produced a four track e.p. of charming yet sometimes brutal indie rock. Available for digital download on Egomaniac Music.


La réactivation de Egomaniac Music le label de Monsieur Joe Algeri aura produit en quelques mois une jolie collection de succulent EP qui possèdent tout pour charmer les amateurs de mélodies Pop. Et surtout à chaque fois on se retrouve avec des disques onctueux, euphorisants, courts mais riches. Comme ce "Debut EP" de The City Views qui nous ramène en plein rêve 90's Noisy Pop, un pied du côté des MC4 un autre chez le REM de la période IRS. 5 chansons qui viennent frapper gentiment à porte de votre cervelet pour s'y installer douillettement et pour longtemps.

The City Views devrait forer profond chez tous ceux qui comme moi se sentent orphelin des Lemonheads, ne sont pas insensible à l'espièglerie des Muffs, craquent sur la Jangle Pop, Guadalcanal Diary, ont encore quelques bons souvenirs de la période Pop des Cure et révèrent toujours le Paisley Underground !

Le Pouvoir de la Pop : sans aucun doute !

- Bertrand Tappaz, Voix de Garage (France)

Set to be released October 23, 2015, The City Views (Egomaniac Music) informs us the band already has their act together. The four-track EP – which offers all original material – ripples, romps and rustles to an engaging cadence geared to keep the listener interested.

A bubbling cauldron of chiming guitars, harmonious vocals, and insistent hooks wash over the City Views’ terminally catchy “That’s Why You Always Take the Long Way Home,” where “Mute,” “Can’t Afford a Wedding,” and “Subconscious Psychosis” are cut of a similar fabric. Crackling with energy, hypnotic rhythms, and a nice balance of melody and distortion, these songs expose the band’s love for dreamy but driving shoegazing pop, brimming with concentrated emotions.

A shimmering rawness and edge, complemented by a taut incision levitate The City Views to skyscraper heights. These guys really know their stuff, and I am sure that everybody who hears this disc will become an instant fan.

- Beverly Paterson, Something Else (USA)
