One of the groups who absolutely wowed us at our SXSW day party in Austin this past March, it features Anders Parker of Varnaline and New Multitudes and Kendall Meade of Mascott and Sparklehorse. You gonna love this one, kids, no lie… Don’t miss ’em live, either.

Here we go: “City of Greats” is the new single and video from Anders & Kendall, who released their debut full-length collaboration Wild Chorus earlier this year to critical acclaim—including at BLURT, whose reviewer enthused, “Think Johnny and June, Dolly and George or Gram and Emmylou. Anders & Kendall bring those duos to mind while singing rings around one another, executing their intentions with perfect finesse while making their duets sound both sexy and sweet.”
No kidding. Here’s the video, which we are damned proud to serve up to ya:
This Spring they’ve been touring the U.S., including an upcoming trip to the West Coast starting this Friday (tour dates and ticket links below). This new video is Anders & Kendall’s visual love letter to New York City, and features them visiting all of their favorite haunts around the Big Apple. Directed by Steve Makowski, the final shot is an homage to a scene from one of Anders & Kendall’s favorite NYC-centric films: Woody Allen’s Manhattan.
