We Premiered the New Video from Liverpool’s The Entire City – ‘January’
While the name of Liverpool duo The Entire City may seem somewhat grandiose, it’s a fitting title for the pair who, having spent their formative years playing in bands across their hometown, imbibing Liverpool’s own unique musical and cultural identity, have come to embody a DIY sensibility that could only come from such a varied musical milieu.
Fiercely independent, The Entire City have several self-released singles, creating all the artwork and videos for the songs themselves, not to mention recently learning to mix and produce the tracks as well. Not an easy task for any band, let alone one with just two members. What is has allowed however, is that now Jamie (guitar, vocals) and Jams (drums) answer to no-one but themselves, and compromise to no-one but each other.
The result is difficult to pigeonhole, yet that’s the beauty of it; their colossal sound belying a depth and nuance that hugely rewards further listening. Though having earned comparisons to the likes of My Bloody Valentine or SWANS, there’s much more at play here than two people trying to get the biggest noise out of the fewest instruments.
Indeed, the band’s forthcoming single ‘January’ harbours a Cure-esque elegance that’s not without its own darkness. Four minutes of brooding post-punk, it showcases yet another facet of The Entire City. RGM are pleased to exclusively premiere the track’s video:
