Recently signed to the legendary Kitsuné label are Citizens!, a band from London whose ambition is to ‘reclaim pop’. A back-to-the-future sound resembling an early-70s Bowie-esque vision of the 80s – what Diamond Dogs might have sounded like remixed by Martin Rushent. Citizens! say they despise retro-mania, though they’re steeped in the past, with Bowie and Steve Harley as a foundation. Their debut album has been produced by Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand.
Citizens! tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Feb 2012.
