Produced by Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand fame, the band’s quick rise to fame following the European release of their debut album last March boasts a sold-out, three week residency at London’s Ridley Road Market Bar this past July and upcoming shows at El Rey in Los Angeles and shows during New York’s CMJ. Citizens! is signed to Kitsuné / Cooperative Music.
If you enjoyed the first single, “True Romance,” off of UK pop, band Citizens! forthcoming debut album you will surely love the accompanying video just released. It’s an awesome, romantic and sexy narrative of different couples through riots, on cliffs and in car chases; the band cites a shot of a couple in the Vancouver Riots as inspiration. The WeAreFromLA – directed video, which perfectly matches the upbeat and addictive song is “The way in which we look for the intense personal moment to triumph over the doom and chaos of the world at large” – said Citizens!
