Pop vocal duo Capital Cities released their latest single "Kangaroo
Court" to radio. It is the follow-up to their Top 10 hit single
"Safe and Sound."
The duo is made up of Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian, both of which
served as songwriters, thus co-writing this new song themselves. They
are signed to Capitol Records.
Within a 10 day time period, their music video has garnered almost 1.7
million views on their YouTube page. It is quite different than anything
that they previously done before since the actors are all dressed up
as animals and it includes a courtroom scene, where the main character,
a zebra, is tried in court for being an impostor. The "Kangaroo
Court" video features cameos from such popular actors as Darren
Criss from "Glee" and Shannon Woodward from "Raising
Merchant and Simonian also co-directed their video, along with award-winning
director Carlos Lopez Estrada; moreover, it was co-produced by Kim Stuckwisch
and Danny Lockwood.
The opening melody of "Kangaroo Court" is catchy, the song's
instrumentals are infectious and it has a neat arrangement to it. Capital
Cities' vocals are smooth throughout. Similar to "Safe and Sound,"
this new single deserves to fare well on the radio airwaves.
