The band self-released their debut single Take Me Home (Kiss and Tell) in the summer of 2009, followed by their first UK tour which both sparked an interest within the music industry and gained them a vast following of loyal fans. The City Calls have been extensively gigging and touring since that release; also supporting the likes of Futures, Twenty Twenty and The Mission District from Canada.
The band have also headlined sold-out shows in their hometown of Southampton, played at the 40th anniversary of Glastonbury Festival, the massive student festival Beach Break Live and was one of the top-billed bands on the Butserquest Stage at 2010’s Butserfest along with Deaf Havana and Lecarla.

This year is the bands biggest yet, with the upcoming release of their mini-album A Spark To Ignite, it displays the bands exciting energy and massive chorus sing-alongs that are sure to make an huge impact on speakers and an impact just as massive in their live shows. The band released the song Truth or Dare before Christmas 2010 and the video for the song featured on music channels Lava and Scuzz and has received thousands of views on YouTube.
Their sound has been described as “a raw version of You Me At Six, Paramore and New Found Glory” and that they have “energy, catchy hooks and an exciting live show, leaving the audience wanting more.”
