High Hopes: City And Colour

Hardcore singer Dallas Green’s accidental melodic side project gets bigger – and darker.

A quick list of some things that Napster achieved in the late 90s: leading the way for the file-sharing boom; planting in the heads of an entire generation the idea that music could be free; royally pissing off Lars Ulrich…

Those pesky file-sharing programs helped launch City And Colour, the melodious offshoot project from Canadian post-hardcore group Alexisonfire guitarist/vocalist Dallas Green. C&C began as a series of demos recorded in a basement at the back end of the 1990s. Green thought no one would get to hear those songs, but then the MP3 explosion came along.
