Captains of the Citadel is yet another one of the many new and exciting bands weve found this year hailing from Indie-rock musics new hotspot, London. The dazzling foursome composed of Adam Ross Hunt, Derek Williamson, Timothy Hunt , and Thomas Herbert is very reminiscent of 90s grunge rock music, collecting many of the spunky elements we came to love and adore when played by bands like Collective Soul, Pearl Jam and Incubus.
Being a new band and all, Captains of the Citadel has an extremely limited discography; including the groups four track debut EP How to Dismantle Yourself and a couple other new tracks available on their MySpace . However, with just six songs to their name, Captains of the Citadel has shown remarkable talent through their bouncy rhythms, charming choruses, and captivating vocals.
How to Dismantle Yourself is basically a collection of great drinking songs that make you want to rock out, while youre at the darkest dive bar in town. The bands latest track Lacy Bra Song, is without a doubt their best work yet, with its sexy keyboards, jazzy bass and wicked guitar riffs. A few other notable tracks are radio friendly The Partys Always the Same, the grungy feel of Water and How to Dismantle Yourself with its wicked chord progression and peppy vocals.
The music is nothing entirely new or original, but Captains of the Citadel are very, very good at what they do. And from the little weve heard from them so far, its already safe to say that these London-ites are safely on their way to success with catchy rock songs that are sure to please!
