The City And Horses – Ruins


“If all the girls are wearing headphones, how will they hear me singing Belle & Sebastian?”

It’s a knowing opening line. If Ruins is like anything, it’s like a Belle & Sebastian record. There’s more self-deprecation to wade through, but at its core, this is the life of—as singer Marc Cantone puts it—a boy in a woman’s world.

Ruins isn’t a huge departure from previous City And Horses albums, but it doesn’t need to be when the tunes are this catchy. The jingle-jangle sounds of sunny days and launderettes meet insecurity and anguished, Dr. Dog-style soul. Check out “Drag” below.
