We Are The City - High School

After a week off, the Video Hits return here at the hill with a vengeance! That makes pretty much no sense, but everything sounds better when you do it with a vengeance, does it not? How else would one explain Steve Segal? Well that’s another very broad topic for another time, now is time for the videos.

 

We Are The City are an energetic Kelowna, BC indie pop/rock trio that seem to be picking up new admirers by the day. Their second album (or EP? I don’t know anymore), High School, will be out at the end of the month, and if the clip for Happy New Year (a performance video where they cover their faces Ghostface Killer style) is any indication, their admirers will be legion shortly after it comes out.

 

Julie Fader is a hill favorite for many reasons, most relating to her immense musical talent, but also for her amusing way with words on the Twitterz. Anyhoo, Julie has a relatively new video for her lovely song Maps, and she pretty well shows everyone how an animated video should be done. Quite a beautiful video.

 

We’ll finish this week’s video three pack with a beautiful video of a completely different sort: the black & white clip for The Ballad Of Moose Bruce features the “finishing move” sequence between wrestlers Chris Hero and Marcus Marquez. It’s actually a much more compelling visual than that description made it sound, so check it below. Enjoy today’s videos!
