Run For Cover Records
CITIZEN "Young States" 7"
The material offers a glimpse into the band's impressive and diverse growth, talent and promise. Tracks like "I Still Shut My Eyes" and "Untitled" are some of the catchiest uptempo emo/punk songs of the last decade while "Right Through" has ballad-esque qualities, calling to mind the slow pop punk classics of bands liek Taking Back Sunday and Brand New. The two acoustic renditions further showcase singer Mat Kerkes raw natural charisma and prove that Citizen has a long and exciting career ahead.
