Cities You Wish You Were From
March 20, 2021
Cities You Wish You Were From is a two-man rock band from Northern California that is not the Black Keys. Comprised of singer and guitarist Elijah Jenkins (of Eli and the Sound Cult and Waste Money) and drummer Tyler Downie (of Paper Ghost and Behind the Satellites), Cities’ dragged-through-the-gutter sound is as heavy-hitting and raw as it is sparse and airy. An “amalgamation of those soul-wrenching moments in Appalachian blues and that untameable punk-rock sensibility,” if you will.
