The music of Canadian band Port Cities balances Nashville with Nova Scotia into a rustic and atmospheric sound, with an indie intimacy that betrays the band’s globe-trotting ambitions – 2017 sees them embark upon their second cross-Canadian and European tours. Their new single Where Have You Been has some nice oozing harmonies and intricate slide guitar. As band member Carleton Stone explains, “One thing we all seem to connect with lyrically is showing a less-than-perfect idea of love, and not being scared to talk about how everything is not great, or call out a lot of what normal, traditional love songs would be about.” As a bonus the song has been marked “clean” too so you can play it to your mum.
