City of the Sun


The experiential music of City of the Sun is the sound you didn’t know you were missing. New York City’s powerhouse group flip the perception of instrumental music, attracting a whole new generation to the genre.

Formed in 2011, City of the Sun features guitarist John Pita, and percussionist Zach Para. The band’s sound has an array of influences including indie rock, American folk, flamenco, and blues; it’s been called worldly, cinematic, a mix between Rodrigo y Gabriela and Explosions in the Sky.

COS has since been established as a powerhouse group in the post-rock sphere. They’ve sold out New York’s top indie venues Brooklyn Steel, Irving Plaza, Bowery Ballroom and Gramercy Theater; toured with Peter Bjorn & John, G.Love, STS9, and Thievery Corporation; were featured emerging artists at Panorama NYC, Billboard’s Hot 100, Firefly, Bottle Rock Napa music festivals; and scored “The C Word” documentary soundtrack (directed by Meghan O’Hara and narrated by Morgan Freeman.)

After completing two European tours including major sold-out shows in Athens, London, Amsterdam, Paris and many more, the band released their UNTITLED EP in 2018. The leading track – “Perfect Instance” – has gained over 26 million Spotify streams to date, contributing to over 70 million plays on the platform overall. In 2020, they released their self-titled album which has gained over 16 million streams to date. After releasing their latest EP – “Máscaras en el Viento” – the band is finishing their latest body of work, “Segunda Alma” their new EP is set for release in the coming months.
