Formed in Winnipeg as a between-sets jam session, indie-rock group Imaginary Cities is releasing its second album, Fall of Romance, May 28 on Votiv. The group, which includes Rusty Matyas (The Waking Eyes, The Weakerthans), has a laid-back, cinematic feel that suits singer Marti Sarbit, who sounds comfortable whether performing balladry or a cabaret-style lament.
That lament, “Water Under the Bridge,” is featured in this new trailer for the album, which also gives a peek at a bit of steampunk-style tinkering. Check it out, and then if you happen to be in Delaware, go see the band when it performs at the Firefly Music Festival alongside acts like Vampire Weekend, MGMT, Japandroids, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs June 21 through 23. Tickets are available now.
