Introducing this month’s STA Travel Sounds artists, City of the Sun , an instrumental post-rock trio based in Brooklyn, NY. Formed in 2011, COS features guitarists John Pita, Avi Snow, and percussionist Zach Para. They gained their initial popularity in NYC playing the streets and subways, then graduated to selling out major New York venues. Performing at Ted talk conferences and Sofar Sounds secret shows helped to bring their worldly, “genre-bending” sound to more ears cross-country and world-wide.

Their live LP, “to the sun and all the cities in between” was released in March 2016, landing at #12 on the Billboard Jazz Albums chart. Lead track “Everything” hit #2 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 and #5 on the Global Viral chart.
