Capital Cities is an indie pop duo from Los Angeles. Dual frontmen Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian -- jingle writers who first met on Craigslist -- released their debut EP in 2011. Lead single "Safe and Sound" shot to #2 on Hype Machine, #1 on CMJ's A&R chart and #1 on South American radio.

An endless string of blogosphere favorites followed, helping the band reach fans across the globe. They've thrilled sellout crowds in the U.S., Canada, Europe and South America, sharing the stage with the likes of musical fellows Chromeo, The Knocks, Grouplove, The Killers, and many more.

Guitarist Nick Merwin, bassist Manny Quintero and trumpeter Spencer Ludwig round out the group. Capital Cities are in the studio finishing up their anticipated debut album.
