Originally released in 2013 and lifted from their first album ‘Collapse’, ‘On The Road’ by Montreal based shoegazers ‘The City Gates’ simmers within a delicious melting pot of shoegaze, psych & lo-fi rock with aplomb. The band are inspired by the 80’s & 90’s shoegaze and dream pop scene (Slowdive, MBV, Lush, JMC, Chapterhouse, Moose, etc.). The four-piece create haunting guitars, eclectic and ethereal sounds! This epic accompanying video was produced by esteemed videographer Dariy Karyakin & it enhances the overall feel of the track.
The band are currently in studio finishing up on their next full release but you can check out their latest single ‘Checkpoint Charlie’ right here:
