“Helltown” is the third album from Cincinnati band Electric Citizen and it was released on 28th September by RidingEasy Records. Electric Citizen are a rock outfit built around a husband and wife team and features the amazing vocals of Laura Dolan. They’ve been labelled as stoner, psychedelic or doom metal. I’d posted a recommendation for their previous album in 2016 and I should have a track from the new album on the Friday NI Rocks Show next week!


 

Electric Citizen formed in 2013 and released a self-titled EP that same year. That was followed by the debut album “Sateen” in 2014 and then “Higher Time” in 2016. The latter was a bit of a change of direction but the album was well-received. However, “Helltown” shifts the sound back toward that on the first album.


The release of “Helltown” also marks a return to the original line-up as bass player Nick Vogelphol rejoins singer Laura Dolan, guitarist Ross Dolan and drummer Nate Wagner.

About “NI Rocks Recommends”

The simple idea behind “NI Rocks Recommends” is to acknowledge and promote some of the great music being submitted to Rock Radio NI. The albums that I’ll be recommending are those that you’ll hear me playing tracks from on my shows. I'll not be giving marks or ratings or analyzing the tracks in great detail; just telling you something about the artist and the album. It’s a personal recommendation to go check something out, not a traditional “review”!
