Capital Cities core members Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian began collaborating in 2008 as composers of music for advertising. Some of the discarded commercial demos inspired the songs on the band’s forthcoming debut album. The single “Safe and Sound,” originally written for a cola ad and rejected, now causes “strangers to dance with each other” at the band’s live shows.
