"In This City" is a 2008 single by American band Iglu & Hartly. The song is taken from their first album & Then Boom which was released in late 2008. It charted at #5 in the United Kingdom and #9 in Ireland.[1] It is so far their only hit, thus making them a one-hit wonder.

Release and reception[edit]

The music magazine NME gave the song 8/10 and commented that it has a great chorus and "a joyful pop song".[2] Popjustice made it their 'song of the day', saying "The band specialise in really smart synthy pop tunes with rapping in and when the choruses are this massive it's hard not to become slightly obsessed".[3]

The song was added to the upfront section BBC Radio 1's playlist in August 2008 and the A-List in September 2008.

Charts[edit]

In the United Kingdom, the song entered on the UK Singles Chart at #21 on September 14, 2008 (for the week ending date September 20, 2008) on downloads alone before reaching a peak of #5 two weeks later. In Ireland, it peaked at #9.
