Imaginary Cities is a Canadian indie pop band formed in 2010 in Winnipeg. The band consists of multi-instrumentalist Rusty Matyas, formerly of The Waking Eyes and a sometime collaborator with The Weakerthans, and vocalist Marti Sarbit.[1]

The band's debut album, Temporary Resident, was released in 2011 and quickly topped Canada's campus radio charts.[1] The band won a Western Canada Music Award for Best Pop Album of the Year[2] and was subsequently named as a longlisted nominee for the 2011 Polaris Music Prize.[3] To support the album, the band was selected to play several dates in Eastern Canada and the US[4] as an opening act for Pixies.[1]

The band followed up with its second album, Fall of Romance, in May 2013.[5]
