Riot Fest 2014 Day 1 Band 6: Citizen

Citizen, from south-west Michigan / north-west Ohio, graced the Rebel stage on Day 1 of Toronto's Riot Fest. As I mentioned in my post on The Beaches, a lot of great discoveries can be made by taking a chance at the emerging artists on the smaller festival stage. 
Citizen have a heavy energy that came across well for a first-time listener such as myself. Their presence and tunes will serve them well. They blend dynamics into their tunes, which gives the tunes emotion and drama, and makes the heavy parts heavier. Good stuff!
Here's a handful of Citizen tunes:


"The Summer"

"How Does It Feel?"


"The Night I Drove Alone"

Check out a lot more music over at their Bandcamp.
