about

Our Dear Metropolis is the third album by
the Amsterdam based brassband
Gallowstreet. Our Dear Metropolis is an
(mostly instrumental) ode to their home city
and at the same time a critique of the
direction the city seems to be heading in.
Gallowstreet has taken the sounds of their
city and transposed it to an array of original
compositions that put a spotlight on the
different facets of modern city-life. Facets
that are not reserved for the Dutch capital
alone; powered by a large array of brass
and reed instruments this album provides
the sonic fuel to traverse any modern
cityscape.
The diversity of the city is reflected in the
variety of styles that Gallowstreet employs,
from pulsating trance to solemn hip-hop
grooves. Live, their music translates to an
infectious live show that sparks pure joy
and excitement in their audiences.

The music comes fitted in a beautiful sleeve
with artwork made by Joost Swarte, a
renowned artist who is well known for
making intricate pieces on life in the big city
for the New Yorker.
