The Electric City
Taylor and James Cantone found themselves immersed in the Ibiza rock scene and got inspired to have their own band.

Executed with more style, precision and flair than one would expect from such a young band, Dark Skies should see them start to earn the recognition they deserve. Their show stopping live performance has already led to a management deal with the same team behind Kaiser Chiefs, The Cribs and Franz Ferdinand, earned them various prestigious support slots alongside everyone from Fightstar to The Futureheads, played Benacassim and impressed Roger Daltrey so much that he personally asked them to open for The Who. However, they have also paid their dues on the road, tirelessly taking their notorious transit up and down the country for almost the entirety of the band’s 18 month life span, winning themselves legions of die-hard fans and celebrity admirers. With aggressive guitars reminiscent of Muse and Joy Division sitting comfortably next to stadium sized choruses and taught electro rhythms it’s hardly surprising that The Electric City are currently being tipped for great things.

And with Emma Scott’s single of the week on Kerrang! radio their meteoric rise looks set only to continue. Read more on Last.fm.
