Morning Falls EP Press Release When Cities Of Foam dub themselves ‘the slowest band in the World’, you might think they have a point. The release of their excellent debut album, A Great Day For The Race, was quite some time ago after all, and not a jot since. But the fact that their elusive album follow-up - albeit an EP - is finally here, could, all things considered, be seen as a minor musical miracle. For theirs isn’t a case of laziness or a lack of ambition or ideas, but rather enforced tardiness: a move from hyper-paced London to famously-horizontal Bristol, the addition of yet more babies to their growing broods, and some serious career ladder moves are some of the life hurdles they’ve cleared over the past few years. Considering that just one of these could have easily extinguished the musical ambitions of a lesser band, and that finding the focus for anything else could be quite some challenge in itself, it becomes clear that Cities Of Foam undersell themselves somewhat with that old ‘slowest band’ moniker... Latest release Their latest offering is the small but perfectly formed three-track EP, Morning Falls, which features Sam and Todd alongside long-time collaborators, jazz songstress Nia Lynn and the "Sly and Robbie of British brass" Annie Whitehead. The title track, Morning Falls, is so laid back it's almost horizontal - intricate acoustic guitar weaves itself around crawling beats bass and bleeps, while Nia's effortless vocal is a little bit special. Next up, Princessa is a dubby jazzy hip hoppy electronic type of thing, topped off with an epic trombone solo from Annie Whitehead. And finally, Sky High Lee brings back the acoustic guitar and adds a little upright bass. With a nod in the direction of Glenn Campbell, it's the perfect accompaniment to a summer campfire. The EP comes wrapped in an equally attractive package too, with artwork supplied by super-talented Bristol-based illustrator, Ben Newman. That should be enough to tide you over… until the second album (some time around 2020). HISTORY: Cities Of Foam are Sam Menter and Todd Wills, who have been friends since childhood and making music together for longer than they care to remember.

They write, produce and record as a unit, and enlist various other top-notch artists to contribute vocals and musical flourishes. They sound a bit like Air, Royksopp, Beth Orton and Lemon Jelly, but with an added dose of Bristol. Cities Of Foam’s debut album, A Great Day For The Race, was released on Dorado Records, garnering glowing reviews, a worldwide legion of digital fans, accolades such as iTunes Single of the Week, and props from big-hitters such as Patrick Forge and Massive Attack’s Daddy G.
