Ashton Price and Cat Forsley.
Where are you from?
Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Name of band:
As The City Rumbles Underneath.
How would you describe yourselves?
We like to describe the band as dream pop with a heavier beat and more pop focused songwriting.
Who are your main influences musically?
Curve, Slowdive, Depeche Mode and Madonna
What do you hope to achieve in music?
We'd like to be known as having our own distinct sound. We'd also like to reach people with the lyrics we write. There's nothing better than hearing a song and thinking "wow, that lyric sums up something that happened to me perfectly". We'd like to do that for others like bands before have done for us.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Getting a song licensed to the show Degrassi-Next Generation has been a big highlight so far. We've been around for a year and just released our first EP so we're just getting started!
And what’s the moment you want to forget?
We were trying to make a Q&A video during a cold period of fall here in Canada. My phone (which we were using to film) kept dying after we got the shots ready so we had to do it over the span of a few days. Phone has since been replaced. :)
If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Overall we're most proud of Hearts Expire. It has most of the elements in music that we love.
Where can we listen to it?

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask?
Our immediate plans are to release more videos for the songs from our latest EP. We're also planning on doing a few covers before we start writing our follow up EP.
