Win Free Tickets for Capital Cities at Grand Central Miami

Capital Cities' Sebu Simonian and Ryan Merchant.
Capital Cities' Sebu Simonian and Ryan Merchant.

"In some ways, yes. In some ways, no."

That's how Capital Cities' Ryan Merchant feels about his and bandmate Sebu Simonian's so-called "overnight success."

As he pointed out to Crossfade a few months ago, the duo's biggest hit, "'Safe and Sound' was put out in 2011, so it actually feels like kind of long, steady growth of the song." They paid dues, writing commercial jingles and struggling for a shot. And it all paid off, "when," as Merchant says, "the song crossed over to Top 40 and became a global hit."

Over the past year, Capital Cities has toured the world's arenas with Katy Perry. But now the twosome is returning to downtown Miami's Grand Central for a more intimate affair.
