Citizens emerge with new sound on new album
HUMBLE BEAST Records have released the album 'Fear' by
critically-acclaimed Seattle-based band Citizens. Reviewing the project Jesus Freak
Hideout website wrote, "The title track opens the album on an ominous
note, melding big '80s synths into the band's darker rock sound more
cohesively than ever before. Strip these synths away and the song
would actually fit perfectly on the more guitar-led 'A Mirror Dimly'.
This makes 'Fear' the perfect entry point into this brand new
direction, which is revealed to be a more stark departure from the
band's past once you hear songs like the peppy single 'Looking Up'.
Meanwhile, 'Everything For Nothing' has the dance party feel and horn
sections of 'Join The Triumph'." The opinions expressed in this article are
