US band Citizens has been making thoughtful indie-rock music for a decade now and show no signs of slowing down.
Their upcoming full-length record, slated to be released later this year, will follow on from their current EP, A Thousand Shores, which the band hopes to tour in Australia early next year.
Vocalist and songwriter Zach Bolen from Citizens caught up with Esky on FRESH for a conversation about the eye-opening and sometimes painful experiences that have led to these new songs being written, especially in a time of tumultuous division.
Zach also discussed the indie Christian music scene and what pushing beyond the boundaries of “Church music” might look like.
