Collapsing Cities debut Elixir Always was a critical favourite that bought the popular Auckland indie outfit a ticket out of the country, flying the quartet’s acidic anthems to the UK in 2008.
The fresh, slightly ramshackle charm of ‘Seriously’, ‘Fear of Opening
My Mouth’ and ‘Elixir Always’ clicked into extensive airplay not only on
their hometown station BFM but the UK’s XFM and Radio One. Not long after NME
hailed them as one of the magazine’s “10 Hopes of
the Near Future”
In 2010 Collapsing Cities returned home to New Zealand to begin a new album, which ended up being two years in the making.
Strangers Again marries the bands Gang Of Four post-punk sensibility with smart lyrics and great pop hooks.
The album was recorded with Nick Roughan (Dimmer, Die Die Die, The Clean, Skeptics).
