The debut self-titled album from Chicago-based trio To Destroy A City is an album ripe with slow-burning ambience, pulsatingrhythms, and soaring guitars. Often building on a theme, the band weaves together pleasing melodic passages, creatingcompositions that are trance-inducing in their simplicity, yet layered with significance. The uninitiated may find To Destroy A Cityanalogous to label mates Lights Out Asia and port-royal, and, due to some periodic drifting into similar spaces, the wide-screenambient guitar duo Hammock. Such comparisons stem from the tools To Destroy A City use to convey their message; reverbdrenched guitars rub against lofty synths and live drumming entangles itself into deliberate and palpitating electronic beats. This ishighly emotive stuff not without its epic moments that can bring a chill to the listener. A debut this seemingly thought out is a rarityand To Destroy A City make it sound as effortless as it is beautiful.
