THE CITY IS OUR released their new single Livingproduced by the group’s own Oli Duncanson. A massive EFX experience in a nostalgic retro gaming environment, now available worldwide through Arising Empire.
The band says: “‘Alive’ is about acknowledging the demons we have encountered in our lives and actively changing our mindset to banish them into the past and move forward with a new outlook on life. As a group, we have seen so many changes in recent years that it has sometimes been difficult to stay focused on the path forward.
‘Alive’ was an opportunity to throw the rulebook out the window and redefine what we loved to do with music and creative content as a band. We talked a lot about what made us fall in love with music in the first place and discussed records that made us feel something; anything from punishing metal records to 90s popclassic and everything in between. We challenged ourselves to try to combine as many elements as possible into one piece, in order to free ourselves from the restrictions of our past and fully embrace the new era of THECITYISOURS. We believe that everyone should be able to express themselves in any way they want, regardless of race, gender, creed, sexuality or any other labels society may try to impose on us.
This song allowed us to find our true selves. ‘Alive’ is a celebratory anthem that you are perfect just the way you are. “Alive” is the rebirth of THECITYISOURS. »
