Fellow Citizens, a six-piece collective based out of Denver, CO, plays music centered around creative collaboration and personal expression. Containing elements of folk, shoe-gaze, and post-rock, Fellow Citizens has developed their own unique sound, gleaning from a multitude of musical influences. Their first full-length album reflects their fresh perspective and openness to change, resulting in a raw and honest project tying together a year’s worth of creative exploration into the self and the band. The Citizens now embark on a fresh journey of forward-looking creativity and musical discovery, seeking to break ground in different and exciting ways.
“Though some will dub the Citizens shoegaze, even “bootgaze,” neither of those terms applies here, as ill-fitting as they are of artists like Akron/Family and Daniel Lanois. Rather, the music of the Citizens, which sparkles with the feeling of endless possibilities, sounds more like what might have happened if slow-core acts such as Low and Tarnation had been influenced by a decade and a half of indie rock.” – Westword, Tom Murphy
“Their sound was a silvery mix of ambient guitar tone and intricate drum work (a fellow listener suggested that their tone was similar to Fleet Foxes). Each song swelled and sank as the set drove on. I recall being rather blown away by their last song; it was a climactic closer if I ever saw one.” – Something Like Sound
