Broken Surfaces, This Fair City's 2009 EP, is filled with raw dissonance, tension, and cutting vocals. Franklin delivers biting lyrics that are powerfully underscored by moodly guitar and haunting viola. From the opening strains on "What Comes Our Way," to the closing commentary of "In Transit," This Fair City roars into being, a dark and sweet mix on influences, and closes with a vengeance.
This Fair City draws on various musical interests to be exactly what they are: an eclectic mix of grunge rock and eastern European folk.
Line up at the time:
Jason Charles Franklin: Vocals, Guitar
Travis Schultz: Guitar
Brandi "Charlotte" Grahek: Viola
