Song of the Day: Imaginary Cities – Hummingbird

Toronto – I’ve been listening to Imaginary Cities pretty consistently since seeing their showcase at Canadian Music Week way back in March. Their debut record Temporary Resident has been making some waves in Canada and the duo of Marti Sarbit and Rusty Matyas have been riding a wave of momentum lately, including a much sought after opening slot for the Pixies’ Doolittle tour in the spring.

This track, entitled Hummingbird, is just an amazing pop song. It’s catchy, uplifting, and when you first listen to it, it sounds like something familiar but at the same time, something new. I think it could have been one of those opening credit songs for some ’80s family drama on ABC. That’s not an insult – it’s got one of those instant classic feelings to it. I really like Marti Sarbit’s voice. It’s got a playfulness to it that I don’t find in a lot of singers. Check it out. If you like it, check out their new video for some other song here.
