Raincity Blue launches their first full-length album this month. The Vancouver quintet recorded the album, called Stuck on Replay, at Rain City Recorders.

The group describes its sound thus: “vintage aesthetics with contemporary sounds, blending together powerful vocals, sultry saxophone, and feel-good rhythms. Based in Vancouver BC, the five-piece ensemble showcases a unique experience for listeners – integrating influences from funk, soul, psych-rock, and R&B.”
