Kit Citrine's new album "Midnight Masquerade" is an autobiographical release looking into the artist's life events from the past 2 years. Home to 15 songs and running for 45 minutes, the album covers a variety of highly relevant themes.
There are deep looks into the upsides and failures of relationships and dating, thoughtful and rebellious songs about societal problems experienced as a woman, as well as stories stemming from her experiences connected to her past record label deal, and many more.
“The album has ended up as a snapshot of different moments in my life over the past 2 years. I record, produce and mix all of my own music so the album has been a big learning process and I’ve been obsessive about making it as close to my vision as I possibly can.” – Fletcher, James
I wanna make special mention of opening/closing tracks "Future Dinosaurs" and "Future Dinosaurs (reprise)", as their acoustic style and short duration very much remind me of Pink Floyd's album "Animals", and I believe that to be a very nice touch. Also, honorable mention to the track "I Fear God (is leaving tonight)", as its tribal drums-extravaganza mixed with female chants also brings me back to Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of The Moon"!

"This album is our “pilot” so to speak - since this is our debut album. Pilot covers a variety of themes we experience in modern day: frustrations with social media, existential dread, finding yourself in an age of mass information and algorithms, capitalism, introspection, and nostalgia." - HYOOMAN
"Revenge", released on January 17th, is an acoustic rock album housing 9 songs. The release strikes with an easy and rather stripped-back feel, especially in the first song "A Month of Sundays", which begins with acoustic guitar and his mostly spoken vocals, speaking about a divorce through the eyes of a child. The honest, curious and confused thoughts have been put into lyrics in such an endearingly simple way, whilst also making sure to hit straight in the feels.
"The main focus always was music from South India, their unbelievable knowledge and abilities about complex rhythms and improvisational skills, then the crazy super complex rhythms in the New Complexity stream within the so called New Music, a quite intellectual dealing with rhythm, stuff you can hardly imagine and in the end the improvisational aspects of so called Jazz music and its open attitude how to handle determined material."
"The song came together over the span of two months after endless mixes and waiting for Theo to finish his verse... but it was well worth the wait. The energy for this track is contagious and it may be my favorite release to date." Lowtyde
