Formed from the embers of several leading Liverpool bands, The Entire City are an alt. rock duo comprising guitarist/singer Jamie Jenkin and drummer Jams Ward. Based in Liverpool, England, the band formed in early 2017 in the practice rooms and pubs around the city’s North Docks.
Taking their name from a series of paintings by surrealist Max Ernst, the pair spent twelve months working intensively to create a sound that marries experimentation with accessibility.
Making their live debut at Independent Venue Week in February 2018, their songs benefit from the telepathic interplay between the players, honed through hundreds of rehearsal room hours. Recording their debut single Cruel with noted Liverpool producer Danny Woodward (Ladytron, Circa Waves, BC Camplight), they will shortly be releasing Autumn Ritual, their third single, on April 1st.
Inspired by the lyricism of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, the abrasive melodicism of Hüsker Dü, the textures of Pond and The War On Drugs and the bombastic explosiveness of Run The Jewels, The Entire City are creating a world of their very own.
“Their songs have an expansiveness that makes them sound far vaster than the sum of their parts” Bearded Magazine
