Editorial Reviews

"San Francisco's Citizens Here and Abroad are heartbreaking in the very best way ... [they] eschew a weird Cardigans vibe, but gentler and more early `90s, like before Lush's Miki Berenyi got all crazy with the Candy Apple Manic Panic." - THE STRANGER

"An album that instantly speaks to me and beckons me to listen over and over again ... Citizens' music is dark and brooding without going over the edge-a silver lining outlines the songs, providing a sense of hope." - VENUS

"Gelling from the remnants of psych-woolgatherers Secadora and dulcet noise-poppers Dealership, Citizens Here and Abroad blends their interests into something containing a little of both, and quite a bit of neither ... what an exceptional debut this is!" - SKYSCRAPER

"The music is amazing-tight, innovative, and modeled on the best of early-1990s songwriting, such as Sonic Youth or My Bloody Valentine." - SF WEEKLY

The intense urgency that soars throughout the dark, alluring sophomore album from San Francisco indie rock quartet Citizens Here and Abroad catches the ear and the whole heart. Waving, Not Drowning's layered guitars fly over driving drum beats while dueling vocals move from dreamy to alarmed as they convey exactly what it feels like to uncover hidden secrets, hold your breath, and gamble everything to make something happen.

Since the band's debut, Ghosts of Tables and Chairs, was released in 2004, they have honed their sound on tour across the U.S. and Europe. Last year a track off Ghosts was featured on the Fox TV show The OC, and the band's stylish videos continue to receive airplay on MTV Europe's 120 Minutes and With the completion of Waving, Not Drowning and the growing buzz, you get the feeling that Citizens Here and Abroad are on the brink of exploding.
