Among The Citizens are a 4 piece indie/alternative band based near Peterborough, UK. The band have collaboratively created their own distinct sound from a blend of influences such as The Cure and Echo and The Bunnymen with their dreamy, infectious chorus guitar, as well as contemporary artists such as JAWS with their lush and memorable synthesiser/ guitar melodies. In more recent years, they have enjoyed the west coast pop scene listening to bands such as HUNNY and Bad Suns.
The band have been included on the Big In 2019 list published by respected promoters This Feeling in association with Fred Perry Subculture and last year were invited to play as part of the prestigious Blogtober Festival backed by Born Music Online. They have supported Eliza and The Bear, The Scruff, Redfaces, Blushes, The Skinner Brothers and DYGL and sold out shows with promoters including This Feeling, Disorder, Lost in The Manor, Green Mind and Juicebox Live as part of their debut UK tour which took in cities including Brighton, London, Newcastle, Sheffield and Leeds. The first quarter of 2019 will see the band support up and coming artists Valeras and Bloxx.
This summer the band will play 110 Above Festival on the Commune stage. Among The Citizens have received radio support from BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio and won the New Music Generator award for Breakthrough Artist voted for by a panel of music experts from across East Anglia.
