Instantly attractive, Ohio’s Electric Citizen rank amongst Roadburn‘s faves in the current upsurge of female-fronted, ’70s proto-metal revivalists thanks to Sateen, their debut album and the band’s homage to forebearers like Sir Lord Baltimore, Pentagram, and the daemonic spirit of Amon Düül.
Sateen (out on RidingEasy Records) also draws comparisons to such lesser known ’70s precursors as The Power Of Zeus, Bloodrock or Germany’s Frumpy – high priestess Laura Dolan’s enigmatic, spellbinding, high, wailing vocals even bring to mind the very soul of the mesmeric Inga Rumpf.
Holding a direct retro line to proto-metal’s glorious past, Electric Citizen feel alive and never tiresome, recalling, inevitably, Blood Cermony, Jex Thoth and Purson. However, Electric Citizen‘s dark and esoteric mix of haunting occult rock, unhallowed ’60s West Coast rock, and decidedly British-influenced heavy psychedelia puts the pedal to the metal a bit more – the band doesn’t hypnotically wander in the witchy woods of prog and acid folk that much, instead, Electric Citizen rip and roar.
In keeping with our tradition of bringing you the finest rock ‘n’ roll ceremony of occultish, Sabbathian shades and sounds, Walter & Co are thrilled to announce that Electric Citizen will play the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival on Saturday, April 11, 2015 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
Roadburn Festival 2015 will run for four days from Thursday, April 9 to Sunday, April 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
