Electric Citizen are a rock band first and foremost.
Early Pentagram is evident in some of the song compositions but this is over-shadowed by the heavy fuzzed, psych rock action that fuel these modern retro rockers.
Laura Dolan sings clear and loud with melodic bite and before long, Sabbath meets early Heart springs to mind. With none of the Occult/Hammer overtones that seem to be the template for a lot retro '70's bands, Electric Citizen instead have produced an album full of authentic grooves and quick fire rockers that make me want to dig out some flares and show the world how real air guitar is played.
For a first album, this shows a band with tunnel vision when it comes to getting their raw sound out to the world. Coming out on July 1st, this is going to feature heavily in my summer soundtrack.
Play the track below and feel the love.
