CITIZEN er siden starten i 2009 i Michigan og Ohio blevet beskrevet som både emo, post-hardcore og shoegaze. De og har med deres femte og nyeste udgivelse, ”On Calling The Dogs”, leveret et energisk og fokuseret album.
“We’ve been playing in bands together since we were like 10 or 11 years old, so we have a system that I don’t think anyone else would really understand. There were definitely some tensions in the studio when we were younger, because everyone wants to be right and nobody wants to see their ideas thrown out. But now, the three of us know exactly what to do and nobody’s feelings get hurt, so it really makes Citizen a well-oiled machine.”
