Citizens emerge with new sound on new album

Facing Fear

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'." CR
