City of Glass is a Canadian duo comprised of Michael Champion and David Phu, two longtime friends and opposite personalities. The band was born in Vancouver and cut its teeth in Berlin and across Germany. Drawing from older dark pop favourites, (The Cure, New Order) modern inspirations, (Foals, The Whitest Boy Alive) and a love of electronic music, City of Glass have crafted a unique and memorable sound on their debut LP, "The Modern Age."

In the last years, COG performed for enthusiastic audiences in the UK, France, Germany, Czech Republic, and across Canada. The band was honoured to perform at landmark venues in London, Berlin, and Paris, and at festivals in Prague, Luxembourg, Toronto, Victoria, and Vancouver.

Boasting a list of influences which includes Gang of Four, Soft Cell, Killing Joke, Death From Above 1979, Phil Collins, U2, and Metallica, Girlfriends and Boyfriends are well worth a listen. The Vancouver new wave trio provides an irony-free hybrid of two genres that are rarely combined with any success. They fuse an array of sounds into a product that should be as appealing to fans of Dead Milkmen as it is to fans of DEVO. We can’t wait to see them play again!
