Their most acclaimed single “Sugar Hill” is released in 2013 along with the video shot by Igor Zacharov. The video caught attention of local and national music TV channels and was included in the regular broadcast rotations. In 2013 the bassplayer Jendys decides to leave the band due to the personal reasons and Farky joins the band (ex Clou). The band catches second wind and starts writing new material.
They record new EP that is planned to be released in autumn 2014 along with two single videos.The European tour is planned in support of the EP. The guys supported acts such as Cancer Bats or Stick To Your Guns at their Czech shows. [There are two different bands named CityLights) 1. A disbanded [1998-2006] dreampop band based out of Gothenburg, Sweden. Two former members now play under the name Boat Club. 2.
A Indie Pop band based out of Nottingham, UK. 1. Citylights were an eight year old short lived indie modern-dreampop band during the boom of Bliss Rock in the early to mid millennia. Citylights formed in 1998 in Gothenburg, Sweden by Guitarist Magnus, Drummer Hannes, and Singer Guitarist Andreaus. They were however not past their peers, The Radio Dept, whom their sound was very similar too, yet they transcended it.
In 2006 the band lost Hannes, and the band changed their name to Boat Club taking Citylights to a more Dreamy-electropop sort of sound, that was a slight variation on their former band. Citylights does not have an official release (that I am aware of). While their fan base grew digitally, their mark on the music community is subject of debate. However, they should not be excluded for their impact on growing Swedish dream pop scene; nor that of global post shoegaze movement.
