Winnipeg's soulful pop quintet Imaginary Cities is taking its considerable success south of the border.
Today the band announced an extensive North American tour and released a brand new music video. The tour supports the U.S. release of Temporary Resident.
Last year the CD Temporary Resident garnered the band a nomination for the prestigious Polaris Prize and a coveted tour opening for The Pixies.
Local fans will be happy to know that the band is making a few Canadian stops this summer, including a show at the Pyramid on June 21 as part of the Winnipeg International Jazz Festival.
Ismaila Alfa, host of SCENE on air caught up with lead singer Marti Sarbit, a few weeks ago to get the story behind the new video, "Calm Before the Storm".
