Among The Citizens are fast becoming a hotly-tipped new act from the East of England as they begin to establish themselves as one of the most exciting young bands entering the indie/dreampop genre within the UK. Having burst onto their local music scene almost a year and a half ago and doing many gigs across Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Lincolnshire, this four piece group are looking to spread their wings with the release of their debut EP ‘Unlearn You’, which was recorded, produced and mastered all self sufficiently. Prior to the release of the EP, the opening track ‘Our Love’ was chosen to be played on BBC Introducing Cambridgeshire as well as well as receiving BBC introducing Norfolk track of the week. Following this the bands track 'Needy' was played on BBC radio 6 music with Tom Robinson.

Among The Citizens take inspiration from a lot of different influences due to their members having a very eclectic interest in music however due to this they have collaboratively created their own distinct sound from a blend of bands such as ‘The Cure’ and ‘Echo and The Bunnymen’ with dreamy, infectious chorus guitar, as well as more current bands such as ‘JAWS’ with their lush and memorable synthesiser/guitar melodies. Because of this Among The Citizens have created a fresh, youthful sound; but with that, one that will be around for a long time.

Having met each other at secondary school and being drawn to one another through their love of music the 4 piece went through a number of names prior to choosing Among The Citizens which they straight away knew was the right name for them saying that it describes them best in such a small amount of words as well as the music they want to produce.

Not only have Among The Citizens excelled in their studio work, they have also honed their set on the live gigging scene. They have enjoyed playing at both the Junction and Corn Exchange in Cambridge as well as at EPIC studios in Norwich. Across the early months of 2018 Among The Citizens have played to 2 sold out venues in their home county of Cambridgeshire, the first for promotion giants 'This Feeling' supporting 'Idolising Nova' and the second for 'Green Mind Gigs' at the Portland Arms supporting 'Tom Lumley'.
