    "City Of The Sun Goes Viral, Beats Kanye" - David Moffly, Baeble Music



    "Everything", the new single from City of the Sun from their new album to the sun and all the cities in between, has debuted on the Spotify Viral 50 list this week currently at #11, joining the likes of Kanye West, Jennifer Lopez, and The Lumineers.


    Beginning their journey in scattered regions of the world and coming together performing in the subways and streets of New York City, City of the Sun draws its roots from across the world as well as across the genres. On their debut album, experience music that will leave you in trance. A mix of modern post-rock ambience and frenetic flamenco style guitar work, to the sun and all the cities in between crosses the generational gap and proves you don’t need vocals to captivate.


    Founded by David and Norman Chesky, Chesky records is a GRAMMY® Award winning audiophile label. The label records its albums using a single binaural microphone over the course of one day at a church in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. This immersive process helps to capture the feel of being in the audience, and helps to accurately portray the performance of the musicians.
