Citizen

Citizen is set to release As You Please via Run For Cover Records/Cooking Vinyl Australia on October 6th. The band have debuted a video for the track "In The Middle Of It All".

"We were in discussion with Christopher Good about several topics that the album touches on." says Citizen guitarist, Nick Hamm, adding, "We wanted him to do something loose and largely visual. So he suggested doing this family portrait, so to speak. The way he portrayed an imploding family is very interesting to me. I think he's one of the best doing music videos, currently."

For their third album As You PleaseCitizen is looking inward. Pairing up again with longtime producer Will Yip, the band presents twelve songs that fuse aspects of their entire catalog into one neoteric whole. While the cathartic melancholy of their debut Youth and the jarring intensity of 2015's Everybody is Going to Heaven are both present, the most welcome addition to Citizen's arsenal on As You Please is the range of auxiliary instrumentation and sonic experimentation on the album. This is most notable on In the Middle of it All, where vocalist Mat Kerekes is sampled singing the song title in a modulated, haunting chorus that echoes throughout the song. The addition of organs and unconventional drum effects on songs like You Are A Star and Medicine create shifting emphases on tension and frailty, while the huge choruses of songs like opener Jet and I Forgive No One are reminders that while Citizen dove headfirst into uncharted territory with their new album, the band is still as good as ever at writing emotionally-charged anthems. As You Please presents Citizen's vision at the most focused it has ever been - it is delicately crafted to provoke at every moment.
