To Destroy A City is an instrumental three-piece from Chicago, Illinois. Formed in 2010 and combining elements of post-rock, ambient, electronic, and industrial, their music often builds on a theme, weaving instruments and melodies together to create compositions trance-inducing in their simplicity, yet layered with meaning.
Their self-titled debut was released in 2011. Opening with the droning piano and dreamlike soundscape of Metaphor, the album takes the listener through highs and lows, pounding beats, and ethereal ambience, evoking influences such as The Appleseed Cast, Nine Inch Nails, Hammock, and Boards of Canada.
