Helltown , the forthcoming third album by Electric Citizen is, in many
ways, a homecoming. While the title may seem fittingly metal (if not
exceedingly so), it actually has real relevanc: Helltown
, while also multidimensional, is named after the Cincinnati, OH, neighborhood
in which the band lives, practices, and where the album was written,
recorded and mixed. Now known more prosaically as Northside,
Helltown earned its name in the 1800s due to its reputation for rowdy
taverns frequented by the neighborhood of factory workers and
immigrants.
Inasmuch as this album is an ode to the band’s home and its buried
past, it also represents a return to the grittier sound of their 2014 debut,
Sateen. Furthermore, it marks the return of original bassist
Nick Vogelpohl, who rejoins vocalist Laura Dolan, guitarist
Ross Dolan and drummer Nate Wagner. It’s a fun, tough, dirty rock ‘n’ roll
album.The band’s 2016 album Higher Time was an expansive and somewhat
cleaner effort mixed by Black Keys engineer Collin Dupuis
. It was a landmark moment for the band earning considerable press praise—
Consequence Of Sound named it in the 20 Most Anticipated Albums
of 2016 with “the most breakout potential of all the young bands on
this list.” And, the band’s endless touring since the first album earned
them stints opening for acts like Pentagram, The Crazy World of
Arthur Brown, Fu Manchu, Budos Band, and Wolfmother.
What sets Electric Citizen apart from contemporary heavy
counterparts is their songwriting. The band writes
concise, three-minute, heavy rock songs. While others might now be following suit,
when they started, most bands of their ilk were content writing drawn-
out slow doom dirges. Regardless, none can deliver quite like Electric
Citizen: Laura Dolan’s captivating star-power, Ross Dolan’s perfect
tone and riffs, Wagner’s pugilistic and swinging beats, glued together
by Vogelpohl’s gliding bass lines.
