I love it when Virginia comes to town because she always brings endless giggles and also shares fab UK bands with me. Meet Citizens! - a British indie rock band from London. The group is comprised of 5 adorable Brits and one of them happens to be old schoolmates of Virginia's - Lawrence Diamond who plays keyboards. How cool is that?
There debut album, Here we Are was released back in 2012 on the hippest indie label Kitsune in both the UK and in Europe. They are about to take the US by storm - they recently played Music Hall of Williamsburg and SXSW earlier in March and are on their way to Mexico at the end of the month.
NME has described their style as "sharply glamorous with a dash of Bowie and a glance of Franz."
The band states that "pop is not a dirty word, it's a holy one!" Check out their danceable electronic pop tune "Reptile" below and see for yourself.
