About The City And Us
The City and Us - an Irish four-piece made up of Elva Trill, Mark Hogan, Stephen Youster and Stephen Reilly - are beginning to make their mark on the Irish music scene. Their sound is a mixture of indie, rock, pop and a bit of synth.
In July of 2017, they headlined their own show at the infamous Whelan’s of Dublin. That night, they released another video - a cover of The Chainsmokers ‘Paris’. This time the instruments were an acoustic guitar and a table of cutlery and glasses filled with water. The cover received high praise, going as far as reaching the singer on the original track - Emily Warren - who has said she loved the creativity with which it was done.
After the show at Whelan’s, the band got the opportunity to headline a festival in Zittau, Germany. Then it was back to the studio to write and record new music. They also released a third video covering Calum Scott’s version of ‘Dancing on my Own’, which was shot in a field in the Irish countryside and caught the attention of a few Irish media outlets. Finally, they prepared to play Electric Picnic.
In 2018, the band was offered a spot at the Ho-Hai-Yan festival in Taipei, Taiwan. The rock festival, held on Fulong Beach in July, was jam-packed with over 30,000 people. While in Taipei, the band seized the opportunity to shoot their next music video for the song ‘Something Better. ‘Something Better’ will be released on the 29th of March, 2019 when The City and Us are once again back on the Olympia Theatre stage opening for Keywest.
