mp3: "Little Scars" - Citris

words: Amelinda Burich

If this past Valentine’s Day put you in a mood and wondering if you’re in the friend zone or not, Citris provides a little clarity; “Not looking for love / just want to hang out with you.”

New York's Citris is as sweetly biting as their name suggests. The single "Little Scars" from their upcoming full-length album Panic in Hampton Bays delivers slacker-rock verses with big, driving choruses and gritty '90s alternative vibes with just enough brightness. By the time the singing Weezer-y guitar solo hits, you’ll be shout-singing along and forgetting whatever it was you were overthinking. 

Joining the ranks of modern acts with a take on retro-alternative like Bully, Dilly Dally, and Bleached; Citris deliver their acerbic angst with a refreshingly bright twist.

"Little Scars" can be found on the LP Panic in Hampton Bays released on New Professor Music, 2/24/2017.
