DIRTY ROCK N' ROLL

ELECTRIC CITIZEN (us)

 

What sets Electric Citizen apart from contemporary heavy counterparts is their song

writing. The band writes concise, 3-minute, heavy rock songs. While others might now be following suit, when they started, most bands of their ilk were content writing drawn-out slow doom dirges.

Regardless, none can deliver quite like Electric Citizen: Laura’s captivating star-power, Ross’ perfect tone and riffs, Nate’s pugilistic and swinging beats, glued together by Nick’s gliding bass lines.

 

Helltown, the third album by Electric Citizen is, in many ways, a homecoming. While the title may seem fittingly metal (if not exceedingly so), it actually has real relevance. Helltown (all one word), while also multidimensional, is named after the Cincinnati, OH neighborhood in which the band lives, practices, and where the album was written, recorded and mixed. Now known more prosaically as Northside, Helltown earned its name in the 1800s due to its reputation for rowdy taverns frequented by the neighborhood of factory workers and immigrants (Lygtens Kro and Nordvest anyone?)

 

“In many ways this album is a realignment to the first,” Laura says. “We experimented

a lot on the second album, some of which we learned we didn't like.” Electric Citizen’s

2016 album Higher Time was an expansive and somewhat cleaner effort mixed by

Black Keys engineer Collin Dupuis at Easy Eye in Nashville, TN. It was a landmark

moment for the band earning considerable press praise — Consequence of Sound

named it in the 20 Most Anticipated Albums of 2016 with “the most breakout

potential of all the young bands on this list.” And, the band’s endless touring since the

first album earned them stints opening for acts like Pentagram, The Crazy World of

Arthur Brown, Fu Manchu, Budos Band, Wolfmother and playing renowned festivals

like Psycho Las Vegas, Psycho California and Desert Fest Belgium.

 

Be prepared for a solid round of fun, tough, dirty rock n' roll this fine Saturday evening at Lygtens Kro
