On the heels of Friends Floors, their debut EP which garnered five Music PEI Award nominations, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada based emorive pop rock / punk rock band LITTLE CITIES return with captivating self-titled EP, which we’re pleased to give you in its entirety below! The official first hearing comes with a special band commentary and serves as a perfect treat for fans of Blink-182, Good Charlotte, and Fall Out Boy. Cheer up with their melodious tunes and share the good mood with your friends!
Little Cities adapted to life in isolation, recording “Wasted” with producer Davor Vulama over Zoom. Realizing that each member could record from home, they continued work on the EP remotely. “Bout You” and “Ditchflowers” were revamped from acoustic demos to huge songs that reflect their growth.
“We had the opportunity to write and record ‘Can I Come Over?’ with Gavin Brown, who’s worked with people like Billy Talent, Metric, and Three Days Grace,” said singer/guitarist Mat Hannah (he/him). “It opened our eyes, evolved our songwriting process, and got the ball rolling on this EP…and then COVID-19 hit.”
“At its core, this EP is about finding self-worth and what to believe in during your twenties,” said Hannah. “It’s about discovering who you really are.”

Little Cities is a proper name for a band from the Canadian Maritimes. With modest stomping grounds rooted in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, the band breathe life into a dormant brand of alt-pop rock, with unapologetic focus and vision. The band has worked tirelessly to promote themselves, showcasing at East Coast Music Week, Halifax Pop Explosion, Showcase PEI and Music PEI Week, advancing to the third round of CBC Music’s Searchlight competition in 2019. Working alongside Grammy-nominated and JUNO Award-winning producer Gavin Brown and hometown legend Colin Buchanan (Paper Lions, SORREY, Adyn Townes) has brought a new vision to the band, as they’ve set their sights on bringing their shiny, steadfast, soaked-in-synth alt-pop rock collective nationwide.
