It's a big week for Capital Cities. The LA duo first captivated us with "Safe + Sound" last summer and now they're back with another anthemic pitcher of refreshing pop. This time, they take on the Prince-penned Sinead O'Connor classic "Nothing Compares 2 U" and turn the laidback early '90s swoon-song into an upfront ultra-modern love letter, replete with regal synths and royal horns. Covers these days are usually a topical hit-or-miss but this one just hits and hits. East coasters have two chances to catch Capital Cities at Neon Gold events this week, first at All Things Gold in DC tomorrow (tix HERE), and then at Popshop Brooklyn this Saturday at BK Bowl (tix HERE). No excuses.
