My Name Is Mars x Capital Cities

As March draws to a close, Capital Cities return with a single that takes the point of view of the Roman god the month was named for. Released today by Lazy Hooks/Capitol Records, “My Name Is Mars” blends an operatic chant with funky beats and a vocal appearance by Los Angeles-based rapper Sacha. The track is available for download and streaming HERE.

 

While making no apologies for his violent nature, the god of war exhibits an unexpected sense of humor with lyrics like: “Bulletproof vest, I’m well-dressed/I start the car and I start a war/I throw my spear sincerely/You come near, you pay dearly. »

 

Image remixes for the “My Name is Mars” lyric video, which can be seen HERE, were provided by the PicsArt global community. PicsArt is the world’s largest photo editing and sharing platform with a community of 100 million+ monthly active users and influencers. Learn more or download the app.

 

Hovhannes Avoyan, CEO and Founder of PicsArt, says, “We’re excited to announce our first-ever lyric video collaboration with Capitol Records and Capital Cities. We asked the PicsArt community to create god and galaxy-themed edits inspired by the lyrics of Capital Cities’ new track, ‘My Name is Mars.’ What we received was truly amazing – over 2,000 submissions and 200+ images were chosen for the video. PicsArt enables collaborative and entertaining fan engagement from any mobile device. It’s a brand new way to drive awesome content creation like that produced for Capital Cities. »

 

Capital Cities will bring their dazzling show to such summer festivals as SandJam and Arroyo Seco. See below for itinerary. Founded and fronted by Sebu Simonian and Ryan Merchant, the band offers a bright and groove-heavy take on alt-pop, drawing their infectious energy from the endless juxtapositions within each song: genre-bending production meets indelible melody, high-concept artistry meets classic pop sensibility, clever lyricism meets raw emotion.

 

The L.A.-based band first unveiled that aesthetic with the breakout hit “Safe and Sound,” which went multi-Platinum around the world, topped Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart and entered the Top 10 of the Hot 100. It has sold more than 12 million adjusted tracks globally. The “Safe and Sound” video won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Visual Effects and was nominated for a GRAMMY. Cumulative streams of Capital Cities’ songs now surpass 1.2 billion while video views exceed 420 million globally. The band’s 2013 debut album, In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery, has sold 1.7 million adjusted albums worldwide.
