New Yorks most exciting experimental post-rockers City of the Sun play a rare UK show at Deaf Institute on Sunday 8th December.

The experiential music of City of the Sun is the sound you didnt know you were missing. New York Citys powerhouse trio flip the perception of instrumental music, attracting a whole new generation to the genre.

Formed in 2011, City of the Sun features guitarists John Pita, Avi Snow, and percussionist Zach Para. The bands sound has an array of influences including indie rock, American folk, flamenco, and blues; its been called worldly, cinematic, a mix between Rodrigo y Gabriela and Explosions in the Sky.

COS has since been established as significant players in the post-rock sphere. Theyve sold out New Yorks top indie venues Brooklyn Steel, Irving Plaza, Bowery Ballroom and Gramercy Theater; toured with Peter Bjorn & John, G.Love, STS9, and Thievery Corporation; were featured emerging artists at Panorama NYC, Billboards Hot 100, Firefly, Bottle Rock Napa music festivals; and scored The C Word documentary soundtrack (directed by Meghan OHara and narrated by Morgan Freeman).

After completing two European tours including major sold-out shows in Athens, Greece, the band released UNTITLED EP. Lead track Perfect Instance has gained 18 million Spotify streams to date, contributing to over 70 million plays on the platform overall.
