New York City indie rock quartet Citris just released the reissue of their debut album, Panic in Hampton Bays picked up by tastemaker LA punk label New Professor Music. With accolades from CLRVYNT, Ghettoblaster Magazine, Blackbook and many more, the band shares the visceral new video for “Ex-Dreamer” debuted by Uproxx today.
Front woman Angelina Torreano forms the core of Citris with guitarist and producer Chris Krasnow. The 24 year old New York natives met in the fertile music scene of Purchase, NY, which has produced such beloved artists as Regina Spektor, Dan Deacon, and Mitski. (Torreano also starred in the music video for Mitski’s underground classic track “I Want You.”) Together, the pair set Torreano’s searching lyrics to an onslaught of distorted guitars and drums that recall 90s rock greats like Hole, Garbage and Veruca Salt, as well as contemporaries like Dilly Dally, Bully and Courtney Barnett. Torreano and Krasnow play all the instruments on the album – live, the band is rounded out by drummer Clint Mobley and bassist Gianluca Minucci.
