Citizen
Citizen
Citizen is a punk/indie band that hails from Toledo, Ohio. With some of their members still in high school, to date they've released "The Only Place I Know", a split EP with local friends The Fragile Season [Either/Or Records], which was met with great reviews. Their song "Tracking Time" was included on the compilation "Vs The Earthquake", released after the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in early 2011.

The band released their debut EP, entitled "Young States" (recorded by Jay Maas at The Getaway Recording Studio), digitally on September 1st, 2011 and will be releasing the 12″ LP in January 2012 via Either/Or Records and UK-based City Of Gold Records.

Signing to Mightier Than Sword at the end of 2011, Citizen will also be entering the studio in mid-January to record two tracks for an upcoming split with Virginia Beach, VA-based Turnover, to be released Spring 2012 via Mightier Than Sword/Broken Rim Records. With infectious melodies and a passionate live show, Citizen is poised to be a name you won't soon forget.

If punk-rock is a response to anything, it's pop—music, culture, that which is mass produced and consumed—which is why their combination requires such a delicate balance. With State Lines, singer and guitarist Jade Lilitri successfully maneuvered the two simultaneously; the band's brand of fuzz and bounce, bite and fun, found its stride just before it fizzled out. Jade does more than maintain balance under a new name, Oso Oso seems to extend his capacity in both domains. Indeed, the songs that make up his first full-length Real Stories of True People Who Kind of Looked Like Monsters feel equal parts coarse and tangled and inescapable. "Wet Grass," which begins with thudding toms and guitars that chirp like jungle birds, builds into a chorus thickened with muscular chords and layers of vocals. Jade's melody on tracks like this and "This Must Be a Place" seem instantly hummable—the sort that coax the listener to swim through the thrumming chords and ride the adjacent harmony, if not sing alongside him. Even his bold, buzzing voice seems to express the album's duality—it cuts through the italicized guitars on "Another Night," surfs the wake of "This Must Be an Entrance," hops on "Where You've Been Hiding's" pins and needles, and maintains a confident melody throughout. Thankfully, Real Stories never becomes too pop or too punk, and never stumbles into pop-punk's shiftless landscape. Instead, Oso Oso sets pop against punk, lets them tear into each other until the result is as ragged as it is anthemic.
