British lads Citizens! have released their much awaited sophomore album European Soul, out now via Kitsuné! Profoundly positive, the band’s new album is a slick pop record of modern romanticism that leans towards the future. But now enough with the reading, check out their irresistibly dancy single “Waiting For Your Lover”!
Pop music is more than ever at the heart of the band’s spirit. Very few hearts resisted the rallying cry of their addictive singles “True Romance” and “Reptile”, not to mention their highly praised debut album Here We Are with its heady keyboards and catchy melodies, and now the four Londoners are establishing themselves as an unstoppable dance machine with European Soul.

Back in 2011, alt pop outfit Citizens! experienced a meteoric rise to fame with their high-octane debut single, “True Romance”, released via cult Parisian label Kitsuné, and subsequent debut album, Here We Are, produced by Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos.
The London-based quartet is now gearing up for the release of their sophomore effort, European Soul, scheduled this April and in the meantime they have shared a video for first single “Lighten Up”. Released digitally in late 2014, the song was recorded as part of the album sessions with producer Laurent d’Herbecourt (whose credits include Phoenix) and features remixes by Tobtok, TÂCHES, Knuckle G, Davidian, Dillistone and new Kitsuné-signing Cesare.
