Dappled Cities Tour


Since Dappled Cities first appeared back in 2001 their sound has become much more layered and complex while  holding onto the original charm the pop on their first album A Smile had. The Sydney band’s third album, Zounds, is lushly arranged with lots of guitar and keyboard and some punchy drumming. Dappled are currently in the middle of an Australian tour, check them out if you get the chance:

21/8 – Canberra – ANU Bar
22/8 – Sydney – Metro Theatre
27/8 – Byron Bay – Great Northen Hotel
29/8 – Brisbane – The Zoo
3/9 – Perth – Amplifier Bar

Vist Dappled Cities’ MySpace – Buy Zounds on iTunes or eMusic


The Price was the first single from Zounds, initially i didn’t like it too much but then someone at work started singing the words out loud one day and suddenly i can’t get it out of my head.

Hold Your Back is the first track from Zounds and is probably one of my favourites. It’s got a good slow build up full of quirky drumming and effects punctuating the great synth.

Holy Chord is lifted from second album Granddance and show off the high notes these guys love hitting.

League of German Girls was my favourite track from the first album. It’s completely different from the rest of A Smile but is just such a great track which always washes over me and makes me feel.
