Citizens! reveal their extremely romantic and sexy music video ‘True Romance”, with Wonderland today HERE. The band contributes their inspiration for the “True Romance” video to the image they got from a couple kissing at the Vancouver riots.
Much like this scene, the song and video represent “the way in which we look for the intense personal moment to triumph over the doom and chaos of the world at large.”
The captivating video was directed by the French collective We are from LA.
CITIZENS! release single True Romance, through Kitsuné on Monday 24th September 2012.
Proclaimed as one of the songs of the summer by NME, the single is taken from their recently released Alex Kapranos produced debut album. Here We Are.
The end of last year saw the band support The Rapture and more recently they played the Electric Ballroom in London as part of the NME’s run of Award show gigs, completed a three-week sold-out residency at London’s Ridley Road Market Bar, finished a U.K. tour which culminated in a sold-out London Hoxton Bar & Kitchen show and performed at various festivals including Field Day, Reading & Leeds festival, London’s 1234 Festival in Shoreditch Park & the Bingley Music Live Festival.
