Next City is a rock band from Los Angeles, California, and is comprised of well-known actor and vocalist, Samuel Larsen, and guitar player Philip Paulsen. Both began writing for their project that combines garage rock with a dance vibe. Rounding out the band features bassist Nick Diiorio and drummer, Ben Brinckerhoff.
Next City takes their influential love of superstars Michael Jackson and Prince, along with current rockers, Queens of the Stone Age and The Dead Weather to create their powerful music that’s “got to be heavy, got to make people dance, and got to be honest.”
The quartet has released their debut single, “Blue Star,” this April, with it’s accompanying music video featured below. Their next single, “Tell Me,” will debut this May. The band will kick off their music with two shows in early June in Los Angeles and New York.
June 5 – Los Angeles, CA – The Peppermint Club
June 11 – New York, NY – The Mercury Lounge
