The Cold War was about tension, propaganda, and the struggle for global influence.
So is Rock and Roll.
Metropolis America began in Philadelphia in 2010 when musician and songwriter Cristian Mora connected with drummer Rick Eddy. Mora and Eddy, both children of the Cold War, forged a bond that led to the creation of a sound they call “Cold Pop;” a 21st Century take on the sound and sentiment from the Cold War era in the United States. The first product of this connection and sound was the band's “The Cold Pop Singles” ep in 2011. The addition of Greg Kinter on guitar in 2012 helped to shape their latest creation.
This summer, Metropolis America share their Cold Pop sound by releasing three singles recorded with Brian Sperber (Julian Casablancas, Moby). “A Burden Of Our Youth,” will be released this Memorial Day followed by the hook-laden “Bittersweet” around July 4. The final track, the epic “A Stolen Heart In A Stolen Car,” will be available just before Labor Day. Throughout these holidays let's celebrate that the Cold War is history, but Rock and Roll lives on!
