You know who Torquil Campbell is, right? He's one of the members of the band Stars. He's also in another band, one that's about to release their third full-length album. Memphis consists of Torquil and Chris Dumont. Their new album, Here Comes A City, has been 3 years in the making, and was recorded in New York, Montreal, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Seattle, and Vancouver.
Memphis isn't a side project; it's something that Torq called a gang: "Memphis has been a reason for me and Chris to hang out over the years, and this continues to be its major function. We have a gang; there are two members of it; the gang is called Memphis. It's kind of stupid for two grown men to have a gang based around bicycles and pop music and weed and friendship, but we do, so f*%$ it. And we encourage others, by our example, to form a gang of their own and be with their friends, and write their memories down in the form of songs."
The new album from Memphis, Here Comes A City, comes out on March 8th, and from that album, I played "I Want the Lights on After Dark".
