Marc, the lead singer of The City and Horses, started the band as a side project from his New York apartment. Since the first E.P. release in 1997, the band has evolved, played shows and perfected their indie-pop tracks. Their last EP release, Little Finland, (the first for the Marc’s whole band) on White Shoe Records in the US, had a great review including one by Time Out New York. Their appeal is quite simple — they make jangly, well-crafted pop songs with quirky, intelligent lyrics and quickly hummable hooks. And that’s that. Yet, unlike other contemporary indie bands, The City and Horses hope to remain in the shadows behind their meaningful and melodic tunes. Check out the title track of their soon to be released album, We Will Never Be Discovered, on Paper Garden Records.
