The City Gates – ‘Checkpoint Charlie’ jimmy 06/09/2016 shoegaze Montréal shoegazers The City Gates tease new EP with the slow burner ‘Checkpoint Charlie’. It’s an expansive tune, shifting from introverted to anthemic. If The National decided to turn ‘gazey, I’d expect it would sound something like this! ‘Checkpoint Charlie’ is backed by the equally solid ‘Maddening Ride’, it’s the first from the foursome since 2013’s full length ‘Collapse‘. If you’re in Quebec, catch The City Gates live with The Stargazer Lilies this Friday at La Vitrola.
